A New Painting finished, “The Discovery”

I recently finished an acrylic painting titled, “The Discovery”. The idea for this painting came about from a photo that had been taken of my daughter while vacationing in Jamaica for a week. She was in dire need of time off far away, and when she was there, she seemed to find herself. She was free, happy and showed part of herself we hadn’t seen since she was a child. She totally enjoyed everything and every moment she was there (and even got tattoos, temporary ones, but tattoos nonetheless) to emphasize her discovery of self. Thats the sun and moon on her back. Very spiritual.

The way she is facing the beautiful horizon, her tattoo facing us, and the beautiful blues of the water and sky are like her promising future. She could never go back and be the same person again. She’s changed now.

I believe a print of “The Discovery” would be great for anyone that feels they found their inner being or for someone that has come back from an Island, such as Jamaica, and feels changed in some way. I hope you like this new piece. Something different and challenging. Please check out my Etsy shop, where you will find this print and many others. Thank you so much!
