The Specific Gravity of His Sigh

The second canvas I’ve blogged in the series of obsessive love and compulsive thinking. This is Persephone with her six pomegranate seeds that were eaten in the underworld and brought six months of winter to the above world. The title of this piece is The Specific Gravity of His Sigh. The base is gesso, paper napkins, paint, the original photo, handmade paper and the top layer of embellishment is pencil, gel stick and the (by now) infamous on this blog Sharpie Poster Paint™ marker in white.

I added the second picture so that you could see the obsessive pencil writing in her hair and on her face. The writing just repeats the title of the piece over and over. She’s really worried about that sigh…haven’t we all?
