I’m not a big fan of using black, so I mix my own using dark red, dark blue and dark green. Mixed to much so ended up painting a lot of canvases with a black background. When you’re in Florida, you are surrounded by all of this beautiful foliage. It’s impossible to not get inspired by Florida’s abundant greenery.
Fruit of the Womb, acrylic on canvas, 18”x24”. I painted this for a show at Café Con Leche in Mexican Town for International Women’s Month. If you look closely, you’ll see that I cut out eleven holes in the canvas, made a box to fit behind the hole, and placed something in each box. The second photo is close-ups of the cut outs.
