Different, But Same

Different, But Same, Fabric Postcard, 4" x 6"

I used silk paints on white cotton fabric to create this postcard. It doesn't blend as easily as it does on silk, but the results are satisfactory. The thread sketching around the pears and its shadows is done with black embroidery thread, and the background quilting is done with irridescent thread. I sprayed black acrylic paint over the piece using a toothbrush.

Different, But Same, Colored Pencil, 8" x 10"

This colored pencil drawing is the inspiration for my postcard. This piece has been used several times for different purposes. I've also used this image to create an art quilt that was sold to help fund Alzheimer's research.

When I created this colored pencil drawing, I portrayed the idea of "acceptance." We are unique individuals--different cultural backgrounds, ages, genders, personalities, and beliefs. However, we are all the same in one important aspect--we all want to be loved, appreciated, accepted and encouraged. Thus, the title "Different, but Same."

Thanks, Everyone. I hadn't thought of my own artwork inspiring my new works of art. Thanks for that, Melissa.

Cute funny, Diana.

They remind me of your avatar, Jacq. Interesting.
