Ready to Hang
I tried to keep this little piece trendy by creating a frayed edge look for some red paper holding the fortune cookie. The fortune says "ART" for the interpretation of the viewer. There is a thick layer of acrylics followed by a glossy gesso for a finished look. Enjoy!
I grew up as an only child always feeling very different from everyone. I think we can all relate to that to some degree, and this is where my energy for my artwork originated from. Even though I was well liked, I felt so alone, and I soon realized I could release this insurmountable energy by simply picking up a pencil and drawing. I taught myself to sketch by slowly connecting very vague lines until a form would emerge into an image that I could be proud of. Soon, I became fascinated by graphite which seemed to invite my drawings to come to life.
