Jenny Panda’s Painting

This article is written by Jenny Panda

Last year I made a collage/mixed media picture based on my sister Val’s life. She was born in India, moved to England and  I tried to combine all kinds of fleeting glances of memories from her life into the picture.

Painting

I used matte media to build up certain parts of the pic: doves and textures of various things. I drew her portrait and used a photocopy of that which I embellished with gold for her hair and various parts of the rest of the pic.

I used photocopies of an Indian dancer painting I had done to add patterns here and there, also some Celtic pics as we have theological and Celtic roots.

There were many varied memories to incorporate into the composition.

I was so glad to have made the pic as she recently died and now I have this with which to remember her.
