“Didn’t ask for your opinion.” Acrylic painting.

IT’S DONE!

Loved how the colors came out. I’ve been trying to make the lines muchhhh smoother as well as making sure the canvas is COMPLETELY covered. I even painted the back of the canvas (which I never do) I’ve really been wanting to improve the quality of the paintings these last couple of pieces. Enjoy a video of the painting below, as well as some close up photos.

Work in progress! New artwork!!

Newest piece I’m working on titled “Didn’t ask for your opinion.” As I paint this current piece, I think about strong female icons such Cher, Serena Williams, Rihanna, Diana Ross, etc who live their lives unapologetically and have not let other’s opinions direct how they choose to express themselves and live. Being true to yourself is the best gift you can give yourself.

Medium sized acrylic painting titled “Send Blues” really happy I tried to experiment with colors! Below are some close ups of details!!

Artist note July 18, 2019:

Love the little glimmers of glitter I see in the top right corner of this last photo! Glitter is very messy to work! However, I love the effect it creates and the overall vibe it gives the painting as a whole.

At this point in my life and “painting/artist career” (I know ambitious for such an early start) I would say I am slowly learning new things about acrylic paint and paintings as well as art overall. I definitely had a more narrow view of art toward the beginning of college, but now I think I have widened my horizons slightly.
