Watering the Flowers (work in progress)

Kiki (Kristen) Dondzila's avatar Kiki (Kristen) Dondzila

This piece has been in progress since October 2015, from sketching stages to building a custom trapizoidal canvas and now currently working on putting my concept on the canvas with the use of acrylic paint. I have included a color study, the original sketch, and progress of the actual painting. Will be Finished by the time Art Prize arrives. "Watering The Flowers" is very much a personal painting about my views of the world and how nurturing love can become something beautiful even in the worst of times. As a mother, I am very much concerned with the future of our Planet as a whole and future of our next generations. Not just about the damage we do to the world but our actions as a whole on each other every day as human beings. Even at 26 years of age I have already seen enough of the world to be absolutely afraid of it and love it at the exact same time, having that balance of love/hate, good/evil. We are trapped in a paradox, a skewed perception of reality
