Art: Green Girl (Ripped 06) by Artist Carmen Medlin
This is my entry for the 6th Annual �Ripped Off� Show at EBSQ, where artists pair up with eachother and create their own take on the other artist�s artwork. My painting partner this year is the delightful Miriam Bos, and the artworks of hers I chose to use are �Alleria�, �Between the Leaves�, and �Oriental Fairy�. �Green Girl� is mostly based on a combination of the first two, with a few elements thrown in from �Oriental�. I chose �Alleria� because I enjoyed the mysterious feel of the original piece and the pose. I chose �Between the Leaves� because it is one of my favorite works of Miriam�s, and perhaps this Green Girl might be what the original fairy lurking in the shadows might look like in full body! I also used the oak leaf theme from that piece. Finally, �Oriental Fairy� simply appeals to me in its prettiness. I decided to use the same arm and leg ribbons idea and have her sit upon tree branches. Plus the Green Girl�s face is rather oriental, too� Miriam�s original works were done in acrylics and digital media, and my painting is done in watercolor and colored pencil glazes.
