The Embrace was created during one of the most challenging times of my life. It shows lotus flowers that show how beauty rises from the mud. The lower part of the painting shows the earth colors of mud, even in the dark there is still light. There is also an embrace to show the embrace of life, of love. This painting was created with mixed media: acrylic paints, melted plastic bags, and varnish on canvas.
A painter of acrylic, oil, and/or mixed media, themes of feminine beauty, strength, and power have always been prevalent in Lisa’s art. Since embracing motherhood in the 90’s, the wonder of womanhood has become an even more essential part of her current pieces. The use of bright colors and ever apparent orbs, dots, circles, and bright colors all symbolize life and joy. Universal themes of spirituality, sensuality, and beauty are expressed in her work.
