The Womb

The Womb, Oil on Canvas, SOLD

I went home to St. Thomas recently and saw this painting hanging in my friend Jamila’s living room. I almost forgot I painted it for her. If I remember correctly, it was completed in 2004. It was originally done as a charcoal pastel drawing (2001). Jamila requested it as a painting. The baby is raised off the canvas and is sculpted with layers and layers of oil paint. I figured if the paint can harden on my brushes or palette, it should stay hard on the canvas as a sculpture. It worked! 🙂
