Under the Sea
Mixed media and Acrylic paint on Canvas sealed with Polyacrylic
30cm x 40cm
As an art teacher and art historian, I constantly feel pulled into the realm of mythology and imagination. This painting is about having the right to be who or whatever one wants to be. A strong female figure is presented with the sensual tail of a mermaid through a mixture of acrylic paint, colored pencil, found papers and images. This painting plays with the idea of three-dimensionality on a two-dimensional surface as many parts pop out of the main surface of the canvas.
