After yesterday’s more chaotic painting (“Taking it out on Red”), I felt the need to counteract that releasing of negative energy with a more positive message. Today I painted this response, and although it is not without conflict, the calming content and colours are meant to portray a universal scope with a sense of hope, and the beauty and peace that exists outside and alongside of our world’s terror and turmoil.
Today’s painting is “Searching for Peace”… here are some close-up details:
mixed media on watercolour paper: acrylic, pigmented inks & graphite
approx. size 11″ x 15″ (28 cm x 38 cm)
