Non-framed acrylic on 55x65 cm stretched canvas.

 

Indigo was difficult and took time for me to birth. Starting out, I had no idea at all where I was going. But, my therapist had challenged me to try painting blindfolded, which I decided to give a shot. That resulted in the green background and the big white-blur-red strokes.

 

Then (again) I had to let the painting rest for some time, while I understood what my intuition had actually painted. And late one evening I finally saw it! Eyes! Two big ones! I had up until this point kind of avoided painting eyes, not because I didn't think I could, but rather because it felt sooo intense for me. It actually freaked me out a bit.

 

But now, for this painting, I decided to just go for it anyway.

Having added the eyes I of course quickly saw the nose, mouth and jawline - with I then accentuated. And adding the last bit of magic to it, I frantically added the neon scribbles, which was the final touch.


Also - my daughter (an artist in her own right) helped out quite a bit on this painting, and added both her signature “Mia”, as well as mine. As she was only 6 years old at the time she spelt it “Hrik”, which I really liked and started using as my moniker from her on out.

 

This is also available as an NFT, here.

In case the canvas gets sold first I will burn the NFT file.

If the NFT sells first I'll either torch the original canvas (I can send you a video of it), or just remove it from the market and make it unavailable for sale, and keep it myself. If you buy the NFT the choice is yours!
