It’s fun to use the color of human skin to make artwork. My inspiration: I wanted to use pillow fabric. I had made an excess amount of “breasts” for a previous artwork. I found the breasts an the bottom of a drawer. The fun idea is to paint the breasts in different skin tones and create babies heads, mix races, so it becomes the symbol of peace and nurturing.
