It has been about a month since BIG ended---but I didn't want to miss the opportunity to share some of the incredible BIG paintings that were made in this Tribe!  These pieces were part of Week #5's What It Feels Like To Be Me theme! 

My favorite part of BIG is to witness the transformation that happens.  Women who started a little timid to paint with only one large piece of vellum bristol at the beginning--end up taping four pieces together at the end and expressing themselves BIG BIG BIG!!

It's also interesting to me because each Tribe has their own unique characteristics.  No two tribes are ever the same--and for this Tribe the painters seemed really drawn to the figures.  I think that's super brave of them--and I'm really happy that most of the FEARLESS Painters from this Tribe made their way over to DEEP as well.  I'm not ready to stop painting FEARLESS with them just yet!


The next BIG goes on sale in January 2013!
