This painting is based upon some photographs taken of migrant workers and families. The hopeless expressions on their faces really struck me, and the family unit spending the day under a tarp is haunting, as I had recently attended the Women's March in Washington DC.  This painting is on heavyweight watercolor paper mounted on a cradled birch panel. The edges are slightly inset, so the piece appears to float when hung on the wall.

Getting to Know Robert

Robert Holewinski paints realistic places with his own spin, and also throws in some fictional characters like Shrek. He currently lives in Florida and finds inspiration in the work of artists like Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Henri Matisse and Paul Cézanne. In his work, and that of others, he enjoys being able to see each brush stroke. Fun fact: he used to work for Disney.
