Carnations by Dweran Carnations by Dweran
Oils, 12"x24"

Paintings are powerful tools for expressing emotion. A good painting is completely honest, a window into the heart of the painter.

In this case, even though I didn't mean it to, this painting caught a taste of the depression I was going through while painting it. Now that sadness is told, more honestly than perhaps I would be to anyone but my best friends, to anyone who walks by this painting.

It used to be that people thought that artists could trap the soul of the person they painted in their artwork. I think that the opposite is true.

As artists, we trap and leave a little bit of our own soul in each painting we make...

Oh, I really like what you said in the description, I definitely agree. Each piece of art is really a shard of ourselves. This is absolutely beautiful, by the way :)

I like how the stems in the water are depicted and the dramatic orange light. Well done :)
