Series: This work is from my Mid-Century Modern Inspired series.
Inspiration: If you look in the top left corner of this painting, you'll see what appears to be masts of ships. It reminds me of the Caravel, a ship from the 15-17th century that the Portuguese used to explore the world.
I made this painting following a period of grief in my life. I had finally set down the neutral colors and began reaching for bright, colorful hues to cheer myself up. I was still sad, but beginning to allow myself to relieve the happy memories instead of just trying to forget.
I decided I needed color, movement and an adventure- so I created one. This painting hangs upstairs on my landing right where I can see it when me and my dog play tug and fetch. It’s synonymous with happiness for me.
