Melanin Midnight

Acrylic on Canvas

"Melanin Midnight" is both a reflective and experimental piece
that is inhabited by a blue jay that is perched on an oak branch. The
blue jay looks  back at the viewer as if inviting you to share the space
 created between her and the moon, which hovers above wherever she
goes. The branches ethereally extend themselves out into the night,
which is a mixture of cool hues that are associated to the inner psyche.
The forms of the subjects are expressed through lines that embrace the
diverse tones of the night and wind. This blue jay speaks to our inner
voice and reminds us to embrace the moments that remind us of our
authentic, holistic, or growing nature.
