Figurative Oil Painting | Original painting of girl with lion at Dallas Zoo | Contemporary Painting w/ Electric Pink Colors to Brighten Home

ORIGINAL PAINTING.

“Looking Out There,” oil on 9”x12” wood, original painting

I remember as a teen having that deep desire to escape my reality. Did you ever have that feeling? I was thinking about this when I was at the Dallas Zoo, and I was exploring this idea of the thick glass separating two worlds. And the light was so electric that day and with the angle and the thickness of the glass, it caused this light distortion. So when you looked inside this lion enclosure, on the other side of the glass, it almost looked otherworldly and electric pink. I started playing with the idea that what if instead of it being an enclosure on the other side of the glass, what if it was a portal to another place? And how enticing that might be to someone young and on the cusp of adulthood. So I took some pictures and painted this. The model is my daughter.
