This mixed media piece has lots of built up color and texture! Who hasn't had a broken heart at some point in life? We learn to get through it and come out stronger on the other side! Sometimes those "band aids" we use to repair the broken heart are a bit sharp for the next time around... The artwork is a hardboard cradled panel 24" x 24" x 2" deep (2 3/4" deep total including antique barbed wire band aids).
David Hinds grew up on a poor river bottom farm during the 60's & 70's. He believes that his creativity was fostered out of necessity on this family farm. Although he didn't start painting until 2015, it was never far from his thoughts. Growing up just down the road from famed folk artist George Colin had left an indelible impression. With the passing of George, David decided that he himself probably wasn't going to get any younger and that just another day was too long not to paint. And so he does, almost every day! David's artwork is whimsical in nature, often calling on his rich childhood memories. Telling a story and making a connection with the viewer is a sought after goal. Working in bold colors with his unique style brings a vibrant energy to each and every piece. Being a self-taught artist David has discovered that at times, some of his best work comes from happy accidents.
