18”x24” acrylic and pen on gallery wrapped canvas 2019

Description: Starting with a bold, black line of movement and working a thin layer of high flow acrylics in to establish a translucent, watery feel juxtaposed with strength, spray paint was added to establish depth in layering. Delicate lines and repetitive patterns appear to create a sense of life and heartbeat. Thick swipes of cool, white paint surround the mountain form, giving the background voice and rich sensory appeal.

*SHIPPING NOTE*

Description

The Story: This one is called “MaunaKea”, named after a spectacular mountain in Hawaii. From its base under the ocean to the summit, it’s the tallest mountain in the world – even taller than Everest. When I painted it, I was thinking about all the women fighting cancer, losing their hair, suffering through chemo and radiation; the pain and sickness they endure, the fight for time with the people they love, and I kept returning to a theme of strength. There’s something powerful about a mountain that prospers in the depths of the ocean as well as the heights of the skies. MaunaKea is also a holy place to the Hawaiian people, where many go in search of the Divine Power. It all felt very appropriate as a visual representation of women overcoming hardships in a beautiful way.
