This is an acrylic painting on hardboard. I like the way the paint handles on hardboard--also called masonite. If you buy it at an artstore you will get good quality board that won't leak glue or pitch, or whatever it is that can come through your painting later and ruin it. This painting is symbolic of feeling the power of different forces scuttling me around in my life. I guess when I did this painting, I was feeling powerless on some level, now I know I'm in charge of my life. I make my own choices.
