Title: A Future Together
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Deep 1.5″ canvas with gallery-wrapped and painted sides for unframed modern display.
This intimate scene, painted by Rachel Dolezal, depicts a mother and child walking with a bright sun shining in front of them. The rays of light join the two figures with the landscape and indicate a journey toward a bright future. The canvas has a heavy texture underneath (an under-painting) that gives character to the painting and perhaps suggests that the mother and child have had a rocky past or have experienced some hardships. With these hard times behind them, they face the sun in tenderness and optimism.
