Even with the intensity of the orange, these hands have a sense of calm and peacefulness. I was drawn here to the shape of the hands and their smoothness juxtaposed against the fuzzy texture sweater. The sweater is really comforting and cozy. With this piece, I had a lot of fun playing with the paint to create a texture that captured that warm fuzziness.

Part of a series focused on depicting hands at rest, work, and at play. I’ve always been interested in drawing hands or photography hands. Hands are a dynamic piece of our body that connects us, through the sense of touch, to the world around us.

This painting is 8 inches square, painted with oils on a linen panel.
