oil & acrylic on canvas, 24"x36" diptych (2 12"x36" canvases)

My first diptych. I finally did something with the two tall, skinny canvases I had lying around and it just happened to work with my idea. This piece was done for the ArtSpark Festival (http://www.hbmgfoundation.org/artspark/) I'm doing this summer. They want the visual artists to create a new piece of art based on their experiences collaborating with their theater teams. So Cuddle Fist is about how the roots of ideas can come together from separate places.

Lulu & Laudesan:

I came up with the title first. I don't know exactly how it came to me, but I wrote it down so I wouldn't forget. I originally thought about having a hand holding the root, but it didn't work well with the design. The named ended up staying though.
