"Dave Matthews" is an acrylic painting on white paper. It was created in 2009 and the dimensions are 16x20 inches. This painting was inspired by the overwhelming passion my sister has for dave matthews. Her love for the band has inspired many projects of mine (All of which have been given to her).
Other than projects that I was assigned in high school, I haven't focused too much on realism. Abstract has always been my strong suit. However, when I was asked to paint dave matthews for my sister I was eager to try something new. I found myself enjoying working with the paints and mixing just the right tints and shades to make the painting exactly how I wanted it.
When I make an abstract painting I rarely feel that I have completely finished and I'm always wanting to makes little changes here and there (which isn't always a bad thing), but this painting was different. For the first time in a long time I felt very confident in presenting the finished product.
