increasing or reviving after a period of little activity, popularity, or occurrence.
Due to the pandemic I decided to stay home and quarantine as much as I can since March. All events were canceled and I decided to turn a spare bedroom into my studio instead of leasing a commercial space. My daughter stays home and goes to school remotely. Life has been pretty secluded. I miss people! I miss all of the art shows I used to attend, I miss connecting with people and sharing our stories. I used to travel all the time and was constantly on the go but now staying home has caused me to slow down and reflect on what I want out of life. Essentially I’ve been laying low and rethinking everything. This is what inspired me to create this piece: Resurgence.
I started with the outline. A simple, quick sketch using a paint marker. I don’t include every detail because I like to add all the details when I’m actually painting. I try not to spend too much time in the sketching phase because the main objective is just making sure the proportions are correct.
This is a beautiful piece. Resurgence is what we all should be thinking and reflecting upon given the year we just had. Resurgence incites me to think, what in my life, my passion, my aspirations and desires need to be resurrected from a dormant state. Thank you for the inspiration! Love you!
