Jump For JOY

24 x 24

acrylic on hardboard

Have you ever felt held back from your dreams of your future? 

This painting captures what it means to be a child again with unbounded joy and visions of limitless possibilities.  If you look carefully, you will find words tucked into the folds of the two girls’ dresses.

This piece started as many layers of texture, color and typographical words.  All those layers add a rich history of the process of making this painting.
