Held

Acrylic dispersion and iridescence on polymer canvas, 12 x 19 inches.
Private collection

I feel very grateful the feeling of being held that was very present through some difficult times this past year. This painting is about that.

For me, Held feels like sunlight through trees. This is one of my favorite things to see when out walking. I’ve used countless tiny hand-painted circles to stand in for the dancing spots of sunlight that cover everything when the light is just right.
