I chose the month of June for my topic of portraiture because I was born in June. Before searching for images, I did a little bit of research on the internet and found out not only that the birthstone is the pearl and the birth flower is the rose but also I there are special event such as the Black Music Month. So I got an image of Les Tres Riches Heures Du Duc De Berry Juin as the base of my collage and incorporated other related images into the canvas.
In this collage, the Gemini Twins are the main characters of the June party. There are famous black musicians on the background celebrating June while women prepare the cake and men help the Twins' chariot move across the field. One can even find a little girl trying to take a look at the enormous cake while her mother holds her back by saying, 'Wait until the cake is ready, sweetie. It's almost done!' Roses bloom and the sky is filled with stars; the entire castle is lighted by the glistening pearl in the evening sky. The evening would stay as a truly happy memory for everyone.
