Life’s Picnic

Ashley Rafferty's avatar Ashley Rafferty

A visual diary of daily life over five years. Begun in May of 2013 this piece evolved over time into what it ultimately is today. The length of time was never intentional but rather a result of the business of life interrupting a constant consistent progress. Spans of time elapsed without a great deal of work being done due to being a mother to an only child, holidays, other activities requiring "more" time. My art and this piece were always put on the back burner and held on warm until I could pick the work back up again. Each picture or image within the piece is a reflection of what was occurring and important to me in my life at the time. The piece is meant to be read from the blue crab in the bottom right, up and down to left and ultimately end with a picnic and the crowned bird painting the last berry.
