“I’m a high school student in Alabama. This painting is an ode to women. I used spray paint and acrylic paint to insert the messages surrounding the woman in the middle. This was my first time using spray paint but I have experimented with oil, acrylic, and charcoal before.
I knew I wanted to paint the girl from a photo reference, but I went along with the process as I went further into the work. At times I felt stuck, but as I mixed different colors, I began to feel inspired each time.”
