"why doesn't he draw faces? He must not know how."
"With this show, I'm trying to convey the mixed emotions that people have from day to day. Some may be depressing, some happy, some scared, and some brave. I feel like for myself, my mood is constantly changing, and I act accordingly. I put on a different mask to let people know where I stand at that moment. Each painting in this series has a mask of sorts that represents a different emotion. Some of the paintings are a little more literal and some are more fun. "
Thank you all so much for the support. I really appreciate it.
I have my first solo show ever in a couple weeks and I've been working really hard to create some good paintings. I find that the more I paint, the more personal emotion and meaning goes into each piece. I hope you guys will enjoy the new stuff.
I'm glad you like that painting, Sven. I had a lot of fun with it. It's titled "Fragile" and I tried to tell that story in a few different ways. I played around with washes to create movement in the piece..to feel as if something is trying to blow the girl over or push her around. The hair is used as the mask in this instance, creating thin shadows across her face that almost resemble cracks in her skin. And the butterflies are meant to continue the feeling of movement as well as be a symbol for something light and delicate.
Thanks again, and please let me know if anyone has any questions.
