Oil painting Private Talk I by Libuse Labik

Private Talk I

Oil, mixed media on canvas
48" x 60" x 1,5"

“How will everything go in my life?” is the question that I believe young people ask themselves before they leave the security of home and family. I used my daughter’s face in this painting; I tried to capture her feelings, emotions of fear and confusion, but also her hope for new beginnings, and for the positive changes on the planet Earth. I titled this piece “Private Talk III” because my daughter loves escaping to nature and talks to it. It is about a silent dialog that is hidden and private.
