Portrait of My Mother
acrylic on canvas
32″ x 24″
“This piece is stunning visually. I feel like I’m in another world when I’m looking at it. The way you’ve captured a subject in a portrait and, managed to make it this emotionally captivating, I think is so impressive.
I love the colors. Your use of colors captivates a mood and, I think that’s a very difficult thing to do and you’ve accomplished it expertly here.
I also love how you paint with shapes. I don’t get a sense that you’re painting for necessarily photo realism, but I love how your shapes are creating larger shapes, which create the relationships. That really work within the painting.
I think your composition is excellent and, your color also plays so well into lighting. And that particular lighting that you’ve given the piece, helps create an overall mood that I think is just wonderful.
I’d love to see you go even bigger next time, showing what an entire environment could look like.”
