"Torn" acrylic on masonite
40 x 80 cm (15.7 x 31.5 inches)
This painting was inspired by my model, who tells a true tale of how hard it can be to overcome the struggles in life while reaching and hoping for some brighter.
It's a feeling I believe we all relate to - constantly fighting against the forces which hold us down, but always retaining the hope for something lighter...we all keep the hope that the peace and calm is out there no matter what may try and tear us back from it.
