“and then I opened my eyes...”

Donna Westerling's avatar Donna Westerling

This is a piece created during 2020 to 2021. It was a dark time in history, and a difficult time for most. One day I woke, and opened my eyes, and decided I could add color to the darkness, and bring light into the shadows... from that, this painting was created. It is watercolor on silk, with added fibers, vintage silk and metal threads, beads, wire, ribbon, old jewelry, and many, many knots. It has been professionally framed.
