Let me walk you through my art process of the 2nd portrait from ‘Don’t Let Them Fool You’ series. It’s the wolf – host and guardian of the forest and not a scary villain from the children story…
Usually once the idea emerges, I make a few rough notes of whatever comes to my mind:
- protect wolves
- stop hunting
- protect the forest
- trash in the forest
- old fridge, sofa etc in the forest
- too much bubble wrap used
- red riding hood
Lotta wrap riding hood. acrylics on wood, 40x50cm. 2022
‘Don’t let them fool you’ is an art series presenting a collection of animal portraits in response to rapidly growing need for sustainable actions.
Usually I create my art to make others smile. However there’s been an anxiety growing inside me and I needed to get it out. Nothing new… It’s about the health of our planet. So what if soon there won’t be anything to smile about?
Isn’t nature the basis of everything?
