Mother Nature #3

Mother Nature #3

Number three of the Mother Nature series!  I tried to make this piece a mixture of the emotions of the other two, so I combined the red and blue for the petals.  The face is looking forward in this one to represent the Mother Nature that looks us in the eye, the parts of nature that we feel close to.

I struggled a lot with the decision to not add a face to this one and Mother Nature 2.  I actually turned in this piece with a face made of twigs and pineapple leaves.  But, when my teacher was creeped out, I knew something had to change!  I remembered a type of doll with no face that my mom made me when I was a kid.  The mentality behind leaving blank faces was so that the owner could see his/her own face in the doll's. A Mother Nature with a blank face is a Mother Nature that changes in expression and form from person to person.
