About this artwork
Symbols of home and family juxtaposed with adventure, discovery and flight are re-occurring themes in Candice's work. A hummingbird boldly flies away from its nest, venturing toward the open landscape ahead. The abstract portion was created from layers of color dripped and pooled onto the surface. The landscape area was made by adding color with a brush and then wiping it away with a cloth. Layers upon layers build up the texture and surface. The intricate details of the bird and nest were formed using fingertips behind a wet cloth.
