When I first heard BREAK MY SOUL by Beyoncé, I felt seen.
I was in a situation with a job that stressed me out, and wanted to break free. It was a constant battle some days not to let the stressful responsibilities ruin my mood for the entire day.
This painting began with the star design and a bold pink outline. From there, I kept adding more colorful lines and turned the background into a geometric design.
The message of the song is powerful - it feels like wanting to break free. The cheetah in the bottom corner is screaming out the words. I chose this majestic figure to represent power and tenacity, much like Beyoncé.
Check out the finished piece. 12x12" acrylic on canvas. I'm so proud of how this came out, and how my artistic style continues to evolve.
