If I Could Be Anyone
36" X 36" X 0.75" Mixed Media (acrylic & graphite) painted on gallery wrapped canvas. Ready to hang.
Sides are painted so art is ready to hang, but due to thin profile, framing may be preferred.
Some of the boldest, most genuine strokes I've ever created, painted in the spur of a moment simply to "move the painting forward". I thought I'd eventually cover up the black marks, but when I stepped back and felt the raw energy I felt like a confident kid with a crayon. Of course I ultimately refined the spaces inside and outside the marks, leaving me with the feeling that I can be anyone I want to be. But the truth is I wouldn't want to be anyone else. I'd still be me, I'd just choose a childlike version of myself to move through life with authenticity and spontaneity, oblivious to judgement with just enough maturity to refine it to an art. Who would you be?
