Title: Searching for my Roots
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 24 x 48
"Searching for my Roots" is a painting that was inspired by a dream I had during a time in my life when I was doing a little bit of what they call "Soul Searching". One night I had a dream of a huge tree with enormous roots that would come out of the ground. I remember that the bright reds and yellows that where glowing in the horizon where blinding. They creating a silhouette of a tree and a woman, the woman appeared to be searching for something.
What makes this painting unique is that the woman is represented by a figure that appears to be a sketch. A sketch is the unfinished product of a painting, giving the essential features without the details. This woman represents me in my search for where I come from, who I am and who I will become.
