I love the reflective gazes of vintage photos, so I’ve been incorporating them into my paintings lately. This utilizes an acrylic image transfer, but I painted entirely over the face, then added flowers. While I was in the process of working on this, someone commented on an issue that I was dealing with, saying “Hope Springs Eternal”. Immediately upon hearing this phrase, I knew this was the title for the painting.
Acrylic, image transfer, and oil on paper, mounted to a panel.
