I can confidently say that I am not about to jump off a cliff or anything similar to end my life.
Why am I telling you this, well when you view my canvas you may be concerned that my state of mind is worrisome. Rob's reaction was to interrogate me, but like I said to him and what I say to you now is look at it as a piece of ART; it relates sadness, depression and hopelessness..... there is no connection to how I am feeling.
I have tried to relate the dark side of creativity; when you have a block. All great Artists went through periods of darkness; Picasso to name one. I am not for one minute pretending to be a great Artist, goodness me I mess with mixed media and paper, it is uncomplicated as it sounds.
Hope I do not depress you for the rest of the day!
The canvas was primed with gesso before building up layers of numerous glazes to obtain a depth I was happy with, I also added embossing paste where she is sitting for a little texture.

Her face maybe hidden but we all feel her distress.
Over at Paper Artsy Challenge Blog the theme is hidden objects, however you can interpret as you like, I was inspired by the hidden faces; (Crafty Dogma and this little guy) that were shown as examples by Leandra.
Do have a happy and joyful day.
