This is an original painting I completed in 2017 for a class. It is acrylic on hardboard and measures 11" x 14" out of the frame, 13" x 16" in the frame. The painting is sealed with a clear glaze to add shine and protection. It features a person in the bath with a lit candle on the rim of the tub. The background is very plain and grimy, I really wanted the focus to be on the figure in the tub. There is definitely a kind of pain in the subject matter of the painting; it feels lonely somehow.
Frame is wood with printed wood grain and there is no glass. There is a sawtooth hook on the back for hanging. I love painting but it is something that I have never been able to do quickly.
I work very slowly and carefully to make sure that every line is perfect and that the colors work cohesively. I tend to work small because of the level of detail I am able to achieve. All of this means I don't produce very many paintings and when I do, I have a hard time parting with them because of all the time that went into them. This one I am particularly proud of because I was able to complete it much faster than many of the other paintings I have done in the past. I painted it for a class and had a deadline that I had to work with, and yet I was able to create a painting that I am very proud of.
