“Gatsby Smile” Oil on canvas
36" × 48" || on display @brandlibrary @thinkspace_art as part of my solo exhibition “The Overture” up until January || paintings like this came along after painting over work I was wasn’t pleased with and ended up loving them after they were painted over. The Gatsby series are completely painted over, or destroyed, or evolved into contemporary paintings. While paintings like this ( Gatsby Smile ) are a hybrid of the two styles, painted over but, but keeping the elements I choose. || subject: @karixmichelle || #oilpainting #theoverture
