Art with a Story

“Metonia” is based on a photo reference I took of my Father’s hands. To begin I used charcoal to create a gestural image on the canvas. Then, I applied an under-painting using thin amounts of paint. These first two stages are very expressive and loose. The second stage is mostly alla prima, where I developed the image to a higher degree of realism.

Metonia means a change is one’s life or a spiritual conversion. The butterflies are a symbol for change. “Metonia” is a pungent moment where the viewer is unsure if the hands are releasing or trapping the butterflies. I often have found myself fighting against change; but change is needed to step into who we are meant to be.

This piece is signed and framed in pine strip frame, black wash. Frame is permanently attached to canvas.
