Digital Art
SoJie14 entry

Again we have been working for the month of September in a workshop doing collaboration and translation of works of art.
This month the submissions were Traditional. Each work was up for Translation or inspired work by the another artist. It could be done in digital, traditional, or Photographic.
My piece is inspired by a work by Elisabeta Herman
Titled A Peaceful world for our children

I love Elisabeta’s message about peace for the future for our children and theirs to come. It is a wish, a hope, and a dream.
My message is a bit more about the family core and what we are responsible for. But yet we choose what we will do. Do we teach our children or do we let others do it for us. They will most certainly find their own beliefs, but I think that values taught when a child is young shapes how they will be through out their life.
I hope that parents will continue to TEACH THEIR CHILDREN…….What we teach and what we do does echo!!
Thanks for viewing
What you teach your children…..echoes…

Traditional, Digital & Photographic Artist
I am inspired by everything in life.
Nature, landscape, city life and more.
Over 25 years as a flight attendant has let me see life from every angle. On the road my camera and Mac are my constant companions. At home, it’s hard to find me with out a paint brush in hand.
No matter what, as long as I am creating I am content.
Thanks for viewing my work!!

    What a FANTASTIC piece of ARTWORK, a DIGITAL MASTERPIECE, my dear Elizabeth! I am speechless!…:)
    I feel very, very honored knowing that my painting inspired you to create such a GORGEOUS WORK, with such a FABULOUS message.
    What can I say?…I LOVE EVERYTHING about this image!
    Congratulations Elizabeth!
    Love and Hugs,

  • Betty, I thought so much about your original message and I am thrilled that I could carry it on in a different way. I love your message of hope, a dream or maybe a wish that it could be so. You laid it out in the original work so perfectly…….so I was hoping this would take it a little further and give parents the message that their role is so important.
    I LOVED doing this collaboration so much!!! I would have loved to have done traditional, but digital gave me a different way to express.. THANKS BETTY!!!! SO GLAD YOU LOVE IT!!

    So powerful Elizabeth, and so skillfully executed. I can only imagine the thought you put into this composition, and some of the techniques you used are quite frankly beyond me. I love the way you joined the family and the world outside, or around, and illustrated the complexity of values in both the family and social contexts. A marvelous work of art that I am still exploring.

  • I am thrilled that you saw this Richard. I always love to hear what you see. I know that much of what I did was intentional, but there are always elements that come out that I didn’t plan and that’s when it is fun to see what others see that I didn’t. But I am so glad that the message was clearly coming out all of the elements. I also added the different colors as a message of how we as parents teach our children about mixed families. I feel that is was so present in Elisabeta’s piece and I wanted to carry it through.
    Thanks Richard…..It’s always such a pleasure to get your comments.

    Totally adore this wonderful work, Elizabeth. You really went outside the box on this one. It’s darling, charming, yet gets the message across. Each deail you added is meaningful, which is the way graphic art must be. The wallpaper and picture and window say “home”, so we know this is a family immediately. The circle says joined in love and synergy. Outside we have a big bridge and ocean to cross – both daunting, but the bridge can help them cross even the widest expanse of hopes and dreams. The light and shadow add the sense of a drama playing out. And the words are something to ponder and draw us in to the thinking underlying the work. Outstanding, Elizabeth! Love it!

  • Gosh Frannie, You are so incredible in how you see art. I know that there are reasons that I do things but so often I don’t see all of the elements and how they relate to the final piece. But I am so glad that I used the bridge. I am very happy with this piece. I also used the color for the family to indicate the issues we face with race and possible prejudice of families that are different.
    I am thrilled more than you know with your awesome comment……and compliment.
    Thanks Frannie for all of it!!!

    Beautiful and meaningful work, Elizabeth. Values are very important, and it is through our actions that children learn. Our teaching does echo. Wonderful translation of Elisabeta’s work. Work with a message about hopes and dreams for our children, and all children is just great art.

  • Thank you so much Tori, your comment is so wonderful to receive. I appreciate it so much!!

    Love this, Elizabeth. Particularly, how you managed to transmit the sense of unity of this family.I think this is an image that speaks by itself; its message is so clear, so well expressed in artistic terms.

  • Danilo, of all the people I thought of while I worked, it was you!! If I had more time I would have asked what you thought before my finish to see if you had any brilliant ideas. (You always do) I just love your work!!! It inspires me very much. But I am glad that it turned out as well as it did and got such a good response. I feel that everyone did get my message and translation. That’s all I can hope for.
    Thanks SO much for your wonderful comment!!!
