This is by far my favorite #gouache brand and color! It’s super smooth and dries very matte and opaque #holbeingouache
There’s a much longer story behind this piece than I have the ability to say here. I think the most important message I wanted to convey with this one is this: The abuse of women, the psychological, sexual, emotional manipulation and traumatization of women, finds a way to reach into the souls of every group of people—however you group them...color, belief, size, nationality, social status, age. Abuse occurs. And when it does, it tangles bits of insecurity, distrust, hopelessness...darkness into the fibers of our being. I want most to convey the light and hope that comes from recognizing your inner strength in the face of seemingly insurmountable adversity, and the beauty that comes when you allow the hurt and the hope to exist peaceably together. Allowing space for the sort of poignant chaos that comes with grief and healing is the difference between good art and a work of art. My 3yr old daughter helped me with this one. For many reasons, it’s perhaps the single-most raw and healing painting I’ve done. #realshit #watercolorpainting #watercolor #artistsoninstagram #art #instaart #mommyandmeart #endviolenceagainstwomen #innerstrength #goddess #goddessart
