Abby loves dragonflies.
Sometimes she gets into her moms make-up.
Abby is often sad when others make fun of her torn and tattered clothes. Sometimes people will use words they think she does not understand, but she does. She knows they don't really mean the awful things they say.
Abby knows her freckled made-up face, her best clothes and shoes and a beautiful crown will always put a smile back on her face.
Abby came to me in a dream. She was inspired by a poem I had written...
This is a mixed media collage painting created on a board roughly 24"x10"x3/8". I used acrylic paint, fabric, tissue paper, an iron on dragonfly, computer generated words, magazine clippings, buttons, twine, Sobo Craft and Fabric Glue and Mod Podge to create Abby's Lesson. I adhered words and phrases cut from an old children's book to the sides all the way around.
