Because I Care
Painting - Mixed Media
"Because I Care" was a commissioned piece for a woman who just lost her husband to cancer. Her friend knew how much she loved red sunflowers and asked that I create a special piece just for her to remind her how much she cared.
The background is full of cracks and bumps that give it a "grecian" feel. There is so much paint and glue used in the work that it has taken at least a week to dry...and that is before I put on the finishing touch of artist varnish.
This is not a painting for the faint of heart. It begs to be touched and experienced.
I am honored to have played a part in bringing beauty from ashes to this young woman through this painting of red sunflowers.
