This month the monthly painting challenge topic was “Reflections”.
Here is my painting, titled “Still there”.
It is oil on canvas and I love it! There are things I can see are wrong with it, but I love it all the same.
When I first saw the prompt, I was thinking about someone hold a hand mirror and you see the eye reflected, or an old woman looking into a mirror to see a young face reflected, or vice versa. And I think I will probably explore these ideas as well. But when I saw this image I thought of someone feeling their skin, to see if they were still there. At that particular moment, that is the idea that resonated with me. Reflecting and reflections.
Here is a work in progress when I had the first layer down.
