|Acrylic and Pencil on Panel - 9x12|
I created a drawing showing someone's head being lifted up. That prompted the painting - I loved the drawing so much.
The sun, the egg and the flowers are all symbols of new life, growth and warmth.
After priming the panel with gesso, I created a wash of yellows and reds. Using the drawing as a guide, I recreated it on the piece after the wash dried. Additionally, I painted the flowers and egg from life. I eventually went over the entire piece with pencil to add emphasis.
I call it "Hope for Another Day."
