My concept for this painting stemmed from the idea that even though many of us have a hard exterior, we have a fun, interesting and exciting interior. It’s important to me to remind myself to get out of my shell and connect with people and life. Own it, live it, love it!
I take elements I’ve drawn, sculpted or photographed and scan them into the computer. Once in the computer, I bring them all together and merge them into one cohesive image. They are then printed with fully archival materials, mounted on board and then finished in oils. What makes my work truly unique is I make the artwork to fit the frames instead of vice versa.
This original painting comes framed in an gold antique ornate frame.
