"Home," 2013. Mixed media on found wood. SOLD.
I am so incredibly excited to be able to offer a new print to you! This one is extra special because when I finished the original painting in 2013, it was sold before I even got it off of the easel. At the time I did not have a professional photographer, and although I tried my hardest, I was not able to get a good photo of it. So...no print and not even a great record for myself.
This image, however, is extra special to me. When I painted it, Todd and Spencer and I were getting settled in to our new life together in our new house. I was pregnant with Lumen and we were planning a wedding. It was the beginning of everything we have now.
This piece was also a major jump in my artistic style. I was just beginning to use more mixed media and the particular texture patterns that you see behind the figure. Birds were becoming more prevalent in my visual vocabulary and I was beginning to really hone the spiritual ideas of my work. This one especially is about not only the physical home, but the spiritual home centered in your heart.
