Ink and gouache on paper, framed
12 x 15 inches
For her Electric Youth piece, Jeanne Rose Gomez chose to feature her constant subject—a woman in a spacesuit, a spacesuit to symbolize an explorer, an adventure. Self Discovery, Jeanne’s 12 x 15-inch ink and gouache on paper painting is not just about self-discovery as the title suggests, it also traverses introspection in times of crises whilst keeping the adventure mindset alive. In this painting, Jeanne created a charming surreal scene involving a candy colored atmosphere, fishes, floating whales, thick foliage of varying shades of green and the youthful subject in her most relaxed state, sipping a drink.
“Discovering something new that shines within you is always a beautiful experience, so as letting yourself out of your comfort zone to keep the adventure spirit alive, especially today.”
