This abstracted figure painting was done with soft, pastel colors and contrasting browns. There are some areas where the paint was scratched into to convey shape and shadow. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with beveled edges, meaning the sides are sloped and not perpendicular (see the detail image). The painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.

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.
