I'm doing another Pick-a-Theme and this one is really giving me issues. I am having trouble finding motivation to work on the pieces... I thought I would tackle the most awkward theme first - "Pain and Passion".
My initial thought for this one, was to do a hand clasping a razor blade (black inkwork) with the only colour being the red of the spilt blood. But that seemed just a little too dark and depressing for me.
So I looked at Frida Kahlo's work, as she had been suggested as a link to the theme.
No motivation there.
Finally, I decided to draw this:
It's an Earwig (pain) on a Passionflower.
I do hope she likes it!
