Mother




I have occasionally included human figures in my work, but for the next year I plan to combine figure with animals and do more storytelling. I spent this whole year exploring elements that I want to include in my future paintings: studied different animals' anatomy and behavior, attended live figure painting sessions, mixed different colors. The whole year was quite experimental, and I hope I can really narrow things down, in terms of theme, color and texture. I have been doing a 30 paintings in 30 days challenge for the past 4 years in January, and will start 2018 with a series of paintings about Mother. I have been carefully avoiding the subject of motherhood so far, even though it is a main part of my life now. I feel it will be a good start for the Ancestors theme for the entire year. My starting point is my "Our Lady" series. Let's see what happens!
