Loss, 2015, Acrylic on Canvas, 30 x 40
The final theme for my figure painting class was death. I haven’t had much experience with death in my life but what I have had experience with is loss. I wanted to capture the feelings of overwhelm, disappointment, hopelessness and even embarrassment that follow loss but I also wanted to imply that we have a choice to rebuild ourselves.
I am very proud of this work, I think it’s the best I’ve done so far. Props to my husband Marc for his mad modeling skills.
