We're Gonna Make It After All
6x6 Encaustic on panel, black floater frame.
Mary Tyler Moore was a symbol for women’s liberation. I grew up the only girl, with two brothers. I was maybe eight when I first started watching this show, and I remember thinking, “Oh, there’s gonna be some changes around here.” (Mary may be the reason why I refused to help my mom with the dishes unless my brothers helped first).
This painting is from the opening scene of the show, while the theme song played. I feel like “We’re gonna make it after all” is the perfect sentiment to start the New Year.
This was painted using the four colors of the modern Zorn palette (cad red, yellow ochre, ivory black and titanium white). I'll be doing some more paintings with this limited palette in the future. Stay tuned.
