This all started from a discussion about a fable regarding the red ribbon of fate. The short version is that every person who is fated to be together (most cultures 'be together' refers to marriage) are tied to one another with a red ribbon by a god. Meanwhile, a friend made an idle comment about there being 'plenty of fish in the sea' with regards to relationships. Naturally my brain went OH HEY, and I started thinking about all the failed and broken relationships that may or may not be 'the one you were meant to have', and a huge weird religious sidetrack that I explored a little bit in an earlier journal. In the end I wanted to play with the idea of there being a soulmate, but perhaps easily missed in the sea of other relationships.
Watercolors, colored pencil, acrylics and some silver leafing that isn't showing up.
Prints will be available once I can get a photograph of the original with a bit more even and true lighting. This was taken in the dark in my room as it's almost 4 am but I very much wanted to share it with everyone now.
I really need to start working in the day time. In better lighting.
