Chasing the Light
"Chasing the Light" is an original 12x12 inch mixed media painting, one of a kind piece on cradled 1" watercolor canvas. Fitted with wire and ready to hang on the wall! Signed and titled on reverse and on front.
A little story about the title: I created this painting on the edges of each day in the golden light of morning and evening. One night I sat in traffic thinking about it, hoping the traffic light would turn green so I could have a few more hours of daylight to put on the final touches. It was always a painting about creativity, and it's funny that my love of the creative process mirrored the theme!
The medium is acrylic paint, my own and Nepalese handmade papers, gelatos, paint pens and stabilo pencils - mixed media. The colors are oranges, browns, neutrals and pops of green. There are lots of layers and textured details in this painting that echo the theme of love and a crush not just on a sweetheart but on one's own creativity.
The orange flowers pictured are zinnias -- symbolic of transformation
The edges are painted in unbleached titanium to match the brightness of the painting.
