Stormy Day Inside
14” x 18”
Acrylic on stretched canvas
This painting was based on someone I know.
She had made equally opposing comments – that she felt lonely for me, yet with me when she thought of me. What the hell does that mean?
So I tried to envision how she might embrace herself to feel with me and also added a bit of nudity to represent the openness.
I made the space behind her reflect chaos and light and used the contrast of warm and cool colors to represent the lonely aspect.
Most only pick up on the lonely. One person said it could even be regret. No one thus far has felt warmth of contentment that I imagined was the message that she is with me.
