This painting never even made it to social media. I will be delivering it to it's new home in #nyc on Monday. I've been having a great time working on new urban landscapes, and I promised first dibs to a good collector, so this one is already taken. But I should have some more like this available soon.
Not just pretty flowers or bridges or places or moments. Ever notice one of the underlying themes to almost all of our work? Hint: bottom-right-ish. You guessed it. Faith. It shows up in just about all of our pieces. Check it 👀 -- Everything is alive and thriving and moving in an inspirational sort of way ↗️
I am so in love with this simple mixed media piece I made in my sketchbook today during my workshop at Moon Gallery & Studio...@makennahatterdesign brought along these vintage Playboy magazines with her and I spotted two starry sky strips that I quickly cut out to experiment with adding clear gesso + charcoal on top, and this just happened. I probably won't be able to resist adding some white ink star splatter on top of it later, but I can't stop staring at it like this. #mixedmedia#sketchbook#artclass#artworkshop#teachingartist#studioart#adriennehodgeart#collage#moongallerystudio @moongallerystudio

"The Melting Pot"- acrylic, ink, and colored pencil on canvas, 18x24
In the world, a melting pot exists, a section of highly diversified individuals, mixing and mingling to their own personal lifestyle, with little to no social interference. They can live their life however they chose; no need for them to follow any preexisting regulations set up as mandatory behavior. But when the Government attempts to interfere with their free-flowing lifestyle, they end up as a not as interesting, straight-lined life of oppression.
This Pollockesque piece can also be interpreted with the pride flag; gays not living as good a life as they deserve, mistreated by the unoppressed and captured into a square box. If only we can live in a world of interesting color, peace, and harmony #art#mixedmedia#acrylic#painting#peace#abstract#colorful#harmony#pollock
