Chalk, acrylic latex and oil on composite board 48” H X 48” W. SOLD
This painting started in the fall of 2014. I was instantly excited to create on the chalkboard which I found. When I found it was covered in a beautiful Tiger design. My friend insisted that I didn’t paint over. However, I didn’t listen once it reached my studio the dertimination to paint was running at a high, I eventually painted over it with black. Next, a figure appeared into the light. That moment I realized I had created some from pure emotion that was focused not on a particular situation. So I began to bring the meaning around the painting and my past experience with my travels to Africa. I had friends from manywalks of life to mark a chalk line marking for every starving kid in Africa. Therefore make the title famine.
