Tails of Life and Devotion

by Kelley Hensing

I didn’t have a plan when I first started this sketch. As I drew, it began forming into an image by stream of thought. After adding all of the elements together, I read a deeper meaning in them- of our nature to survive and thrive.

Medium: oil paint on wood, gold paint embellishments in piece and used for outer oval. Frame: new, custom size in gray, with accents of black and gold added.

Art Measures: 9.5×12.5 in, with Frame: 13×16 in

Kelley earned her MFA from the School of Visual Arts and her BFA from the Rhode Island School of design. Her favorite mediums are oils on wood and pencil on paper, and she loves to create her work by hand. Her favorite genres range from gothic and steampunk to classic fantasy and legends. Traveling is her only other passion equal to a career in art and is a vital component in inspiring her work.
