This piece was an oil painting I did a few years ago of a young actor following his dreams. This man inspired me to pursue my passion for art and I did this as a tribute/ honor to him and his support. It stands for all those following their passions in life.
Liz Mahoney grew up in sunny California and moved at a young age cross country to the East Coast. Stumbling upon her mothers hatbox full of oils as a child, Liz became curious about art. She spent hours daily escaping in a sketch pad or a canvas teaching herself how to draw and paint. In college Liz studied in Florence at Lorenzo de Medici and picked up the foundation to her passion; oil painting. While it began with a focus on people and the human figure, she has developed a new inspiration within the hidden streets of Europe. Currently Liz paints oil on canvas with bold, rich colors illustrating movement in still streets. Her series tells a romantic story through cobblestone streets of Europe.
