The Slumber, by Roxanne Grooms
The Slumber, by Roxanne Grooms, 17" x 14", Acrylic, Colored Pencil and Hand Sewing on Paper, Unframed
As in all of my paintings, the circle becomes personified to take on a role. In The Slumber, it's about pure escapism. Seems the only way to hide out from the world around us is to fall into a deep slumber and dream of a better place.
Curated Description: The Slumber is a mixed media piece composed of abstract geometric and organic shapes. The consistent color palette lets the dialogue between the colored pencil and hand sewing be the star of the composition.
