“Dawn in Autumn”
Acrylic on Canvas – September 2015

This was the second piece that I painted for a live art show. My theme for the evening was to create pieces that reflected my idea of: I have hope that we are on the cusp of a new day. This theme was chosen to reflect the state of the world and what the musician playing at the time and myself have witnessed throughout our lives (death, abuse, terror, etc.) and what it might be like if the oppression ceased to exist and our new reality was one of love. I thought I was finished painting for the evening, and then he started into a song about his sister’s experience with rape and abuse. Finding that I related all too well to what he was saying and overwhelmed with emotions I dove back into painting.

This artwork is a one of a kind piece hand painted by Stephanie Ishler of Hallyu Back. All artwork is for sale unless otherwise specified. If you are interested in purchasing this original painting, contact us here!
