A Piece of My Heart

2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

As a mother of 3, I've always been inspired by the bond between mother and child. I've tried to capture that beauty with "A Piece of My Heart". The painting is done on salvaged glass from old windows that I broke and soldered together then mounted onto a 40x70 sheet of MDF. I used glass paint, acrylic paint and paper flowers in the art work. Then sealed it to protect.
