This project was so much fun to work on! As soon as I saw the shape of the punk, it reminded me of the nesting dolls that I grew up with. I was also moved by the love that is shared between families, friends and loved ones.
As I painted (and day-dreamed out my studio window) I thought about the feeling of simplicity and freedom that Summertime always brings me. The iridescent colors and whimsical patterns were inspired by the magical and carefree Summers of my childhood.
