April describes her inspiration for "Wildfire."
"This painting was inspired with children in mind and by a stock photograph I came across.
I remember when I was a child in my parents room hung a print of a pencil drawing. Displayed in the drawing was a beautiful naked woman with long flowing hair sitting upon a lion with a large flowing mane, both staring fiercely at you. In the background of this image was an eclipse and a butterfly sitting a top the eclipse rings. The only thing colored in the drawing was the lions eyes, woman's eyes and parts of the eclipse. I remember staring at this drawing for hours imaging what kind of world would have fierce beautiful women riding lions; what the woman was trying to convey with her unyielding stare.
Needless to say it sent my imagination wild.
The idea behind this painting was to ignite a child's imagination with an image, such as that image did hanging in my parent's room all those years ago."
We hope you can stop by to visit at the Glenview Art League festival this weekend! Next weekend, catch our $25 promotional classes at Art Fest at the Glen, Aug 7-8.
