For this project, I had to create a concept in favor or against a contraversial topic. Since I am a Christian and am passionate about the pro-life movement, I chose to focus on abortion.
The painting is on a 14″×14″ piece of Bristol paper and is made with Speedball© India ink. In the painting, a baby is in a box that is labelled return to sender. By abording her child, the mother is “sending” her child back to God, the one who created the precious child within her. The mother, on the other hand, is seen walking away from her child. The cracks on the ground represent a harsh womb and the swirls in the sky represent the life of freedom the mother hopes to get after the abortion.
