There is an ARTchix challenge right now for shrines, so today's post contains my two submissions. The first is: "The Shrine to Love", it was inspired by a wonderful movie I just saw called " The Red Violin " (1998 with Samuel Jackson), a marvelous story spanning 3 centuries. The shrine was originally only to be black and white but after seeing this movie, I had to add red. The second is: "The Shrine of the Little Seamstress" having recently finished the book "Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress " by Dai Sijie. I couldn't resist using the thought of a little seamstress for this project's inspiration, even if she isn't Chinese.
Hope you enjoy this art filled post.
