Original oil painting by Liz Vaughn. "Liberating Wisdom". There was a moment earlier in the year where I felt a "switch" flip. My usual "go to" style of female figurative work seemed hollow, and somehow no longer engaging to me. I am quite sure this experience is nothing new to artists, rather more of a familiar companion. To that note, I have been reaching and stretching and allowing myself the freedom of experimentation. I have always loved Expressionism, it feels free, natural, and uncontrived. I feel an emotional pull, a passion, when I paint in this style that is exciting. It is this uncertainty, and at times frustration, that are guiding and transforming this current body of work.
11" inches wide by 14" inches high by 2" inches deep. Painted on all sides, ready for hanging, no frame necessary.
Oil paint, birch panel
