I think Hope is like waiting for a meal when we are hungry. We expect something good to come our way. But our expectations can be shattered like a china plate.
“Broken Vessel # 9 / Hope” Oil and 24k gold leaf, 36″ x 24″
This time I didn’t put the pieces back together exactly. In traditional kintsugi, the pieces are carefully put back together in exactly the same spot. But here I liked having the pieces of the plate offset a bit. I think I will be doing more of that to future paintings. This is also a looser handling of the oil than some of the other paintings. Her hands especially. And that’s ok…I am still just trying to find my way with each image.
Here is a pic with the masking on it before cutting it up with the saw.
Next week, lets talk about Faith….
Thank you. Amazing series!
Art that has a concept and metaphor is very interesting to me. Hope your future art gives balance, unity and emphasis in your life!
Thanks. It is what gets us through everything else..
Excellent series! I love every study that you created!
Well said. And your painting
Exemplifies just that. Love your sense of creativity.
