This is a piece I finished 2 weeks ago. I was reflecting on the digital/technology age and how we hide behind it because we are afraid of showing people our true selves and face who we really are. I also wanted to paint a mysterious figure, and what started out as a vague face of a woman, I interpreted as a modern-day Medusa. I think mythology is really interesting and holds so much inspiring facets, I may continue with this and make some similar paintings.
Material: Acrylic on Canvas
I finished this one a while ago but I've been taking a short break from socializing online (my co-op is challenging and draining a lot of my energy) but here we are! One of my friends/past schoolmate/former coworker approached me in January/February to do a painting for the Relay for life charity, held on June 17th. They wanted something that spoke of strength and healing, and this is what came out of it. I was painting a model in class one day, and the lighting was really interesting. It was all orange and glowy, as if she had light emanating from her.
There will be an auction for the painting and all the proceeds will go to the charity.
