As part of my “Dread” Series, I’ve created another painting which has an iconic presence. Icons in general culture is more like a symbol — for example, a name, face, picture, or even a person readily recognized as having some well-known significance or embodying certain qualities or maybe that represents something of greater significance, usually associated with religious, cultural, political, or economic standing.
The painting began as a graphite drawing, layered with color, then layered with more color…again and again! The whole process of creating is a layered project, which begins as an idea sparked from a creative well from my mind, soul or spirit.
This weekend, it’s dreads, presence and color. What iconic presence resonates with you? In peace.
