I create one of a kind art glass windows and oil painting. I create the feeling or essence of something such as an emotion, music, instrument, human figure in a specific pose. Please view my work at http://isaacdsmith.com
Look closely to see the cream color background right around the figure. I need to get photoshop and figure out how to make the white background actually white in the photo. I titled this "Beginning of Hope". This is a follow up to the painting "Anxiety" which you can see in a previous blog. I have felt a lot the last couple of years, part of which was losing touch with who I am by being beaten down so much and so there is no face on this figure. Part of that is also to show that this could be anyone. The unfolded arm is the beginning of reaching out, having enough hope to reach out. The muscles are not just a stylistic approach but showing there is still strength in me.
