This is a very large painting that was a labour of love as it took quite a few hours to accomplish. The painting for me depicts the feeling of being torn or indecisive about some change or event in life. When you want to make the right decision because the wrong one could have a very adverse effect on your life. The colours in this painting are very earth toned.

Getting to Know Laura

It's the messy things in life that attract Laura Carter. In a literal sense, she enjoys making a mess with paint by using her hands and fingers in each work. She finds that most of her best work springs from difficult times. Her current work explores a range of emotions and facial expressions through portraits. In the end, she hopes that her art will look and feel like an emotional story or journey.
