Her Soul Belongs to Summertime
by Kelsey Garland
“Her soul belongs to Summertime; graceful footsteps on warm sands. A heart that leaps in Ocean waves; Sea salt memory in her hands…” — Angie Weiland-Crosby
My soul has always been drawn to the water. I feel the ocean pull at my heart on warm summer days. The water calms me and erases my worries and I can finally breathe again.
When I can’t make it to the warmth of the water, I daydream. I dream of swimming with sea turtles above Hawaiian reefs, I dream of floating among the jelly fish. And then part of me feels whole again…
This painting is made entirely of Art Resin, Ranger Alcohol Inks, and Winsor & Newton Oil Paints. I paint directly onto the Resin and use molds to add resin layers, full encasing my paintings while also creating a unique, three-dimensional portrait.
Depicted is a double-exposure style portrait of a woman. She has light blue to purple ombre skin and bright purple eyes. In the silhouette of her head is an Hawaiian Ocean scene, showing a coral reef with sea turtles, jelly fish and several tropical fish. Each image is hand painted with oil paints and layered over other painted images with clear resin, to create a three-dimensional portrait. The background is made with Resin and Alcohol Inks, white Ink weighs down the colored inks and pulls them into the resin, creating textures that are truly one of a kind. The entire painting is gloss coated in clear resin and two sawtooth brackets have been attached to the back for easy and seamless hanging. The painting measures 11.5 x 10 inches and is about 1 inch thick, it weighs 4.2 pounds.
