Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Where to begin?

I have been homeschooling my daughter Heather since she was 8 years old. She is now 15 and a half. We have had a fun and really quite interesting road since the start of this adventure. Art has been the main vein that runs through these years and connects them all together.

Not only is and has Mom been a professional artist since 1998, (she was born in 97) but I had a Zodiac reading done for my daughter last summer (2012) and it was rather scary. Well...not really scary I guess, but...profound maybe? ALL of her houses were artistic. All of them. Everything she does, she does from the arts point of view, period. I was not particularly surprised that the arts played a big part, I've seen that from the start. But ALL of the houses?? That blew me away.

I couldn't stand it, so I had my own reading. Guess what? She has more art in all of her houses than I do. And I'm the one who has been driven since about the age of forever to do something, anything artistic, even if it's color all over the walls (thanks Mom!) Mine was more "Can't be held down, Won't be fenced in, Freedom loving" kind of reading. Which really blew me away because once I sat back and looked at it, this gal had, in a one hour session, nailed it. Flat out nailed it.

Weird, right?

So. From the very beginning I named my studio and business Heather Sky Studio. In hopes that she would eventually take the reins and do more and take it higher. A little bit hard for some folks to follow me as the artist since my name is not Heather Sky, my daughter's is. Onward. We do collaborations together. We have done quite a few and this one is one of the very best. She is coming into her own as an artist and it is quite apparent in this piece.

She and I had an agreement. We would work on it until we ran into an impasse and then we passed it back. Back and forth and here we are. This is what we came up with. She started with the eyes, those are all hers, and I started collaging and painting which lead her to collage and paint too. We had a lot of fun with this piece. It's a mother and daughter story, with real purpose, real love, and yeah a wee bit of "hey, I wasn't expecting that!" hee hee. It really was fun.

I hope that through this rather long winded story you can get a bit of what we experienced creating this piece. And hey, I'm into teaching her about being an entrepreneur, to take your bliss and make some money with it. It can be done. She actually has done it before to some collectors in NY who buy specifically child art. Yep. Life is fair and honest and decent as long as you keep on trucking.

That is our story on this piece. :-)
