The Warrior

This portrait depicts my granda, Denis, on St. Patrick’s Day. Besides everything else that was against the older generation in 2020, his wife, my grandmother, passed away this year and I believe that struggle is clear in this painting, however silent he can be sometimes. I used acrylic paints to express this piece, I enjoyed the contrast of the bright colours of the festive hat and his dower expression, I think it reflected my ‘now’ very well.
