A Little Help from my Friends by lauren-moyer A Little Help from my Friends by lauren-moyer
Artwork done for the show "Meth & Hot Dogs".

The piece is sorta about trying to put my life back together after my fiance left me. Each bird and the hands are painted on separate canvases then embroidered onto the main canvas. It's a technique I did on a few paintings during school. [link] But I made the mistake of sewing through canvas and not linen this time! My fingers hurt!!

Anyway to see more pictures from the show go here > [link]

I really love your art style. It is beautiful, but not at all typical. Everything you do has this wonderfully intriguing twist to it!

I love this. It conveys a truly beautiful sadness, with just the perfect tinge of hope. I am reminded of Gabriele Munter's 'Breakfast with the Birds' a bit too. (She did that piece in 1934 - after being left by artist Wassily Kandinsky) Really nice job!

Wow! I really like the style of this, and how you connect the painting, and the medium. And, also, I think, a feeling many of us can relate to.

Pretty! Kind of reminds me of the movie The Silence of the Lambs for some reason, tho.

This is absolutely amazing! :aww: Great idea of literally stitching the pieces on.
I feel bad to hear your fiancee left you though...
