"Good Vibes" by Robin Maria Pedrero 12" x 12" acrylic
Last week I contacted my sponsors in regard to refunding the money they had given intended for the Orlando/Berlin exhibit which I have declined to participate in. I am very pleased to share that all of the sponsors have decided to receive artwork instead of a refund. My friend and sponsor Elizabeth had a special request. "Good Vibes" was created specifically for Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson's hospitalized friend Cherie. I began the painting intending for it to be uplifting and healing. The yellow and light blue were the first colors I placed on the canvas. Elizabeth asked for an autumn scene, so I went in with lots of reds and oranges which I later toned down with washes of siennas and blues. The leaves are falling and foliage colors begin to soften. The white bird flies above the ascending flowers and plants, representing our spirit rising above all things. I wish this to be a piece for Cherie to gaze upon and feel a sense of being uplifted as she learns to deal with her adapted limitations.
"Good Vibes" is available to purchase as a print in any size, on a mug, or set of notecards.
