With Glistening Edges - MOI


With Glistening Edges
30" x 24"
Oil on canvas
-
This is a new piece for an upcoming show at Lovetts: Masters of Influence. The juried invitational will feature singular pieces from over 50 artists nationwide. Each piece for the show is inspired by the chosen "master". This year, the master of influence is Charles Loloma(1921-1992). Loloma, a Native American jeweler, infused a great sense of design into his work.
While it was easy to get inspired by Loloma's amazing work, it was challenging to settle on exactly what I wanted to paint. However, I am satisfied with the painting I ended up with. I don't want to break down my painting and explain why and what...I would much rather have the viewer make their own connections.
