SOLD "Holding Onto Innocence"
SOLD "Holding On To Innocence"
We live in a complex world where innocence is difficult to hold onto, especially for our youth. Her stuffed toy symbolizes that magical time before the concerns and cares of the world settle in.
Original Painting by Jacquline Hurlbert
This is one of my original acrylic paintings mounted on a "cradled" wood panel. It's ready to hang by the attached picture wire on the back. The dimensions are: 19 1/2" x 14 3/4" x 1"
Each of my paintings is a collection of under paintings. I build up layers of paint and texture before I introduce a figure. This provides a rich backdrop for the image to live on. It also helps me to mentally prepare for the story I'm about to tell.
I use symbolism to communicate my thoughts and ideas. The symbols I use create a pictorial language that I share with my audience. Each piece is a unique expression of my response to my inner world and the world around me.
