Mirror Mirror On the Wall

Having young children at home and the fact that they STILL think momma is fun and “the best momma in the world” My art is highly influenced by them.  It tends to refelct on what we are actually doing around the house or in the gardens or what we are watching on TV. And seeing my daughter Olivia and I share an art room together she gives me her honest, heart warming opinion on EVERYTHING.

And I mean when she doens’t like something she will usually give you a better way of doing it in her eyes. So when it came to the Mirror Mirror on the Wall Piece, we were talking about how we wanted it to look and we had the movie up on the screen. And Olivia is pointing out details in the walls and torches and things evolved from there. Until it was time to make the tourches.

So Apoxie Sculpt in hand. (she gets to mix it up for me and then play with the left overs beaucase I can never measure just enough) I struggled, and then struggled some more, and then had to make supper, and she asked if she could help. Why not, lets see what the girl’s got.

I was happy to see I wasn’t the only one that stuggled, but with much delight the tourches were done, and not by me. So as proud as Olivia was, I said “well we better put them where they belong.”

So to pay credit where credit is due, Olivia the little scutlper that she is, did in fact, make the beautiful tourches. And with some expert Olivia guidance of colour choices, this “best momma of the world” finished the paint details that made the whole project.

A Collaberation of the minds, our rendition of “Mirror Mirror on the Wall” was completed, and Olivia is one proud artist.
