painting of woman with sunflowers in the background. her 1990s patterned shirt has suns and moons on it, layered with a velvet dress.

I was playing around with patterns and textures on this one. Her necklace says "cool" but her face has 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. Isn't it bananas how we can torture ourselves like that!?

 

Painted on 12"x16" 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.
