I was playing around with patterns and textures on this one. Her necklace says "cool" but her face says no chill.
I love how lush and busy everything in this painting is. Even though the patterns are calming subjects - sunflowers, suns, moons - it creates an atmosphere of chaos. I'm interested in the idea that we can turn pleasant things into panic attacks with our minds. I almost wrote that I "like" that idea. I definitely don't like it, but it's part of my reality.
Maybe at some point I'll have investigated it deeply enough that I can figure out how to avoid actually doing it...
Painted on 12x16" canvas board. Canvas board is mostly flat, so this painting fits nicely in a store-bought 12x16 frame if you take the glass out. You can also get it professionally framed or just set it unframed on a shelf.
If you are local to Calgary, contact me for pickup or delivery. Otherwise I'll ship your painting safely in layers of cardboard and bubble wrap.
