My latest painting is a deeply personal one.
Those of you who know me, or even those who have just skim read my ‘about me’ page will realise why. I took a decision early on in this painting not to take progress photos as I usually do, as I would prefer this piece to be judged on its own finished merits, and not the techniques with which it was produced.
Motherhood – 20″ x 24″ Acrylic on canvas
It is heavy with symbolism, and I’m sure that any psychoanalysts out there would have a field day with it! I don’t want to influence your interpretation of it, so all I’m going to say is that I deliberately chose a limited palette to enable the composition and subject matter to take the viewers’ attention. I won’t explain each aspect of the painting here, but I am more than happy to answer any questions about it in the comments – please do let me know what you think of it, and if there’s anything that you’d like to know about the painting.
