For this painting I thought a lot about emotion. Specifically the emotion of fear and how it is so easy during times like these for fear to be the first emotion to come to the surface. As I began to study the layers of the painting , and the deep contrast between colors, I was reminded of all the challenges and all the uncertainty everyone faces in their lives.
As the colors became one and complemented each other on the canvas the idea of fear evolved into Perspective, and how we could all use fear as a motivation to channel positivity. It’s kind of like that old adage, don’t run away from a challenge – run towards it. Don’t embrace fear… but rather be comfortable with it
