A Moment of Transparency Original Art on Canvas
- Unit Price
Its truly hard to put down in words everything that was channeled into this painting. I began this piece in a fury of anger, sadness, and unsureness as I approached a pivotal crossroad in my life earlier this year. What began as a much needed release of negative emotions turned into a lesson for me. While easier said than done, I knew I had to make the best of this negativity. As I stared into the abstract mess of uncoordinated color and form, I realized this pivotal painting was to become a self portrait, a bare-all, in a way that opened my soul for self discovery and allow me to rise like a phoenix from the ashes. It taught me how valuable it is to put my soul and story into my paintings, for me and for the sake of truth in my artwork. It's all too common to put on a happy mask on social media, but sometimes we need to let both the yin and yang shine so we know we're not alone in our struggles. I will let you pull the meaning you seek from the imagery and hope it has lessons for you as well. I hope you can feel my joy, my pain, my struggle, and my rise. Sometimes we have to allow ourselves to feel the flames to grow in the fire.
Original Painting is 3' x 3' x 1.5" Acrylic on Stretched canvas. I started this piece after moving to Asheville on a return trip home to Cincinnati to paint a show with Papadosio. I started it there and carried the energy through a potent time in my life. After a stretch of time in the studio, i brought the piece to the Tipper and Friends event at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park.
