On a Tuesday, I’m Gonna Hug You, 2020

M. Allworth

Acrylic and modelling paste on canvas

A simple hug can make someone feel secure and loved. These feelings are shared when I think of home.

My depiction of two people hugging was centered around the happiness and warmth felt coming home, talking to my family, and most importantly sharing a hug with my mom

The two sides of the painting contrast with each other, yet each side shares a bit of the colour from the other, just like all the people in my family who are not the same but love one another.

I would like to dedicate this piece to my mother. You rock Mom!
