Art: Key to my Past by Artist Amanda Makepeace
Key to my Past has a lot of personal symbolism. The objects in the hands are all things from my studio. The two stones in particular have great significance. I grew up with horses and they also happened to be the first thing I practiced drawing and painting as a child. The turquoise stone is MY stone. I love turquoise and it's the only stone I like to wear.

The hands are also symbolic because I've been battling with a raging arthritis in my hands for the last few years. Stiffness and pain have made it increasingly difficult to paint in traditional mediums; which is why I've turned more and more to digital mediums.

Painted with various brushes in Photoshop CS6.
