Take a trip into another reality with this mixed-media Caterpillar! It's a tribute to the curiously strange that can come about on a rainy day, as much as consideration of what life could have been like if evolution happened differently. The walking plant is primarily matte acrylic with a bit of red nail polish to make the stems glisten in the light. The Caterpillar itself is made of a combination of painted & glued sand, parot feathers, parokeet feathers, rose petals, and sea-oats. Overlaying both subjects are the light-blue metalic drips of a sticky rain, It's a textural and visual wonderland glimpsing into another reality. (No birds where harmed in the making of this painting!)
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," the coo before the command, "Lead by example." Remmy didn't always believe in such things, couldn't until she first accepted the truth and intelligence they bestowed. Even so, it took years to turn the knowledge into practical and personal application. In 2017 Remmy started shifting her creative interest toward the Stream of Consciousness and sharing of information, thoughts, and concepts. From cabinet maker to customer service rep, toll collector to call center quality specialist and trainer, home remodeler to paint night art instructor, and a variety of odd jobs in between. Broken bones to 3rd degree burns, self-loathing to helping others, hating the world to leading with love, caring only for herself to caring for her ailing Grandparents... Remmy has a lot of life insights to share; and the care/passion to make every RA artwork worth owning.
