One of my goals as an artist is to become more intentional about the subjects I paint and the way I paint them. I just need to make sure to balance that intention with staying open to what inspires me and curious about technique. I'd be lying if I told you I'm not figuring this all out every minute I paint. It's an exciting process.
"Those Eyes" is a painting that is a little different for me and very much a piece of my journey as an artist. I found this child captivating. I have so many questions about his experience. I wanted my rendering to be expressive, rich in color, and full of texture.
