Helping hands given , and received open us to the wonders of the heart that lives in love
“” My Name is Love , “” done last year at anarts residency at the Art Students League country retreat is a digitally altered image ,combining painting and photography . I often use the body as a canvas in my work , and I used natural elements for paints in doing this portrait of Tendai . She is painted with various clays , and spices of varied colors . We dressed her hair in roses , sculpting it upwards , combining clays to create color , and piling the braids high like a crown , we filled them with the fragrant blooms . Her hand is open , like her heart , and an open heart needs no words .
