This piece is very important to me, after a loss inspiration this past summer…times are hard now, but I am looking to my art once again for solace…It brought my work back to life. I have found solace again. It feels like a new day…

I really did enjoy working on this piece through the sojie 14 workshop….

Media Used: pastels, charcoal, coffee, toothpaste on mi-teintes paper 12 × 18

A translation of Anthea’s piece, ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ for SoJie 14.
I have a detailed journal entry filled with the WIP images, located here.

    I think this is my favorite work of yours Christina. Beautiful job with this. It’s emotional, sexy, and feminine. The colors are unusual and work great with your style.

  • Thank you Frannie…I really did enjoy working on this piece through the workshop. It brought my art back to life….I have had a hard summer, and lost solace through my artwork. Feeling as though I had betrayed myself only made me feel worse. But when I saw this piece, I felt something so innate….I had to contact Anthea….I have found solace again. It feels like a new day…. :-) xoxo

You have done a magnificent job in translating my painting ‘Be Careful What You Wish For…’ You should be so happy and proud of your final work. I am very happy withh what you have created. It was such a great joy to look through your works in process. I just got home from work and what a wonderful surprise. I am so amazed at how quickly you brought this art work together and I love how you have used mixed media. I am delighted with the outcome and thank you very much for choosing my painting from the SoJie 14 Workshop. I love what you have created dear Christina.
