Bamboo Collection- Mixed Media
I did these paintings of a motivational story about Chinese bamboo. It’s about following your dreams. I’ve used paper mache and pencil sharpenings to create texture on the paintings.
The Chinese bamboo spends five years putting down roots before it even starts growing. The farmer has to believe in his dream of growing bamboo even though there’s no evidence that it’s working. Everyone laughs at the farmer and thinks that he’s doing nothing. He wants to give up but carries on watering the bamboo. After five years of nothing the bamboo suddenly grows fast and reaches 25 meters tall. Keep following your dreams!!!! xxx
