Mother | Acrylic on Canvas | 24" x 36"
Created as part of an art challenge, "Mother" is a portrait that was part of a small series of figurative works. The figures were integrated into an abstracted ocean environment - allowing a great deal of freedom in the execution (and a great deal of fun in the creation!)
Acrylic is an amazingly versatile medium, one that can approximate media as diverse as watercolor and oil paint. The approach here was to dilute greatly, treating the paint like watercolor, allowing drips and 'happy surprises' to become elements of the composition.
