Myth and Prescription, 2015, Acrylic on Board, 24 x 36
The assignment was to depict Myth using two human figures. I chose to go with myth as in stories that we tell and hand down one to another and apply a prescriptive quality to them. The irony in this image is that if you are trying to obtain a prescription, something designed specifically for you, shouldn’t you look with your own eyes?
I tried a different technique than usual, using transparent paint and graphite together, to obtain a more illustrative look that would be reminiscent of Norman Rockwell.
