I'm committing to a new painting every month for 2021!

Series: 2021 #4
Both my mother and maternal grandmother are artists and have painted flowers. Flowers are generally not my usual subject matter, but I have been wanting to connect with them on a creative level and make my own. I thought this would be the perfect time to stretch and do something different with this one.
Elemental Series (Feminine): Earth, Wind, Fire & Water
This series represents a more stylized approach to portraying the human form than the artist's usual realism.
Elemental Series (Masculine):Earth, Wind, Fire & Water
After completing the first four of the Elemental Series, the artist was challenged to paint men as the subject matter. Normally drawn to the graceful female form, the artist indeed found it challenging to create archetypal masculine figures that represented strength, without resorting to negative stereotypes.
