It isn’t uncommon for artwork to be performance pieces or intangible items. With the help of Paula Remele-Rusconi, a fabulous body paint artist, we were able to create something magical for a mom -to-be.
After brainstorming some, Paula & I came up with the concept of using the American Sign Language sign for MOTHER to be incorporated into body paint art depicting the concept “Mother Earth”. Paula painted mom’s face to be Earth since that is closest to the sign MOTHER/MOM.
Paula then included the astrological sign for the Mom-To-Be near her heart, and the astrological sign for her baby on her tummy. Any astrology guru’s out there? Let’s see if you can figure out what their signs are.
Being pregnant and getting body painted for your maternity photos is extremely fun but doesn’t go without some challenges. Bathroom breaks are not as easy as usual :) but we will hand feed you drinks as needed through a straw – look ma’ no hands!
After painting the finals details, we were ready to take photos!! I chose a deep black background to give the feel of being in space.
Something perfect for their walls!
