"Go" is a one of a kind piece of mixed media art available for purchase in my Etsy shop.
Ooooooh, this goddess (Could it be Kali Ma?) is seriously telling you to go and get your groove on.
The hearts reveal that she's doing it with love but she is not messing around. She knows that you are holding back from your full self and she's not going to let you slide. The time is now - go all in, or go home. To quote the Shawshank Redemption, "Get busy living, or get busy dying."
I started painting figures such as these about six years ago and they have been popping up in my art ever since. What began as a few small movements with a watercolor brush, have become one of my favorite artistic elements regardless of the media I choose to depict them in. I fondly refer to them as Spirit People."
"Go" is an original mixed media piece. It is a mix of acrylic paint, acrylic gesso, Sharpie oil paint pens and a white gel pen - it was then sprayed with an acrylic clear coat for preservation. This was created on a 14 x 18" Blick canvas panel ready to frame. (Could also be hung as-is but you would have to purchase your preferred hardware to do so.) Signed and dated 09/26/11. You can purchase her in my Etsy shop.
