Acrylic painting on wood panel

18" x 24"

This painting explores the topic of 'exposure' through the use of a double exposure look and using watered down layers of paint. This style is inspired by Alyssa Monks' gritty oil paintings that show a range of raw emotion. I really wanted to give the audience the feeling that they are witnessing something that should be more private, but that feeling lends to the theme of exposing oneself and letting others see things that usually wouldn't be revealed.
