I painted this with acrylics when I was a senior in high school. Hills and cute little houses were like my go to subject when I didn’t have any other good ideas or photos to work from. I sold this painting a few years ago.
Two weekends ago, I experienced my first power outage that lasted more than a few hours–this one lasted almost 3 days for my family and I, and up to a week for others. It was definitely humbling and I realized how easy it was for me to feel hopeless without my precious electricity. Eventually I took advantage of the lack of power and drew for a few hours in my sister’s air-conditioned apartment. I titled to above drawing “Energy” in honor of that memorable weekend :] Here’s to not taking energy for granted!
