Grandma, 24″x18″ Spray Paint and Acrylic on Canvas
Hot west Texas days created the perfect backdrop to meet this amazing and warmhearted woman. My wife’s grandmother has had a lasting effect over the years on me. It was hard to see her go and it still resonates through to today.
As a way to break free from typical conventional approaches I use, this piece was done almost exclusively with spray paint, save for the white which was acrylic paint.
The warmth surrounding her, the backdrop falling away into simple lines and flicks of color. You can’t really see past her and what you can doesn’t seem to come into focus with her in your view.
