"Raw" is an 11”x14” acrylic on canvas panel artwork that serves as a powerful portrait of deep emotional expression. Created with abstract realism techniques, this piece conveys the artist's raw emotions in response to a personal struggle. This is not a self portrait but rather an expression channeling of deep grief of impending loss. Inspired by the news of a cancer diagnosis of a beloved pastor, friend and leader, the artwork captures a poignant moment of introspection and vulnerability. The dynamic brushwork and expressive colors evoke a sense of rawness and intensity, inviting viewers to connect with the artist's journey through her own emotional experiences.
