“Contemplation”, displays the emotions invoked by drawing inward during reflection. The black brush strokes define the figure and form a gentle but distraught expression that emits from the subject’s face and position. The contrast in color, particularly yellows and blues, dramatize the figure in motion while situating them at the forefront of the painting. Allow the texture of the acrylic to activate your senses and feel the internal conflict that is visible in this painting.
