"Cognizance" is a painting I curated out of a selection of paintings from my very first collection, the "Dreamers" series.
The Dreamers were a huge step forward for me, combining my love of portraiture with images of animals and nature, as well as an attempt at giving portraits a specific deeper meaning.
"Cognizance" was really fun; I had never painted crystals before, and loved the sharp imagery juxtaposed with the softness of her expression. It speaks about the clarity of the creative mind.
This painting is 11x14", watercolor on canvas, unframed
