Julie Pelaez: Midlife Catharsis (Print)
25" x 25" print
Vibrant colors and fluid motion collide in this alcohol ink & rubbing alcohol print by Julie Pelaez. With my milestone 40th birthday this year, this piece was my reflection on occupying the space in the middle of my life. It is not viewed as a crisis in the least, but more of an acknowledgement and acceptance.
