Tears of Blues 2019

Acrylic, Ink on Canvas

35 ½”W x 51”H | 90cm x 130cm

“Tears Dry on Their Own” was playing on my turntable as I started painting ”Tears of Blues” a canvas layered with shades of blues. The raspy voice of Amy and her lyrics inspired me. The painting depicts the figure of a woman shattered into pieces. The fragmented parts are reconnecting each other in a puzzle, suggesting a rebound of self-confidence after breaking-up.
