Mixed Emotions

by GivenToArt
Mixed Emotions comes from a darker place. Sometimes things aren't what they seem, sometimes they hurt and you can't figure it out. Your outward appearance may be one of pleasant neutral-ness, but your inner workings are in turmoil. This work tries to convey the feeling of helplessness and confusion arising from that state.
Medium: Mixed Media: ink, gouache, collage, oil pastel, acrylic
Size: 30 x 40"
Price: $598 available through artist website @ www.giventoart.com

I actually added the linear work well after I thought I'd completed this work - I was unsure of what it needed but to me, without the overlayed lines it just didn't look finished. It didn't convey what I wanted. Now to me it looks like it shows the confusion arising from an emotional state. Thanks for the feedback! :)

Nice but I think the black 'legs' spoil it.
