Brandi Hofer, Chelsea Painting

I really dig this Chelsea painting by Canadian artist, Brandi Hofer. It’s chalk on paper. I was drawn to this painting because I liked the composition. Even though I don’t know Chelsea, I like this painting. The bright colors and abstract designs speak to me and when I read about it, I knew I had to feature it.

It’s part of a series of portraits she started when her mother passed.

She says that when she lost her mom, “I lost my “home”, the constant in my life. Though her values and way of life are entrenched in my every day, I still long for the sound of her voice.” 

My parents are getting older and it just made me value my mom [and dad] all the more.

She also says “Since the passing of my mother, my life has kicked into high gear. Time is our most precious commodity and should be spent on the things that matter most: Family, love and one’s passions. Moments are fickle and fleeting; I have endeavored to make the most of mine.”

And she includes a quote by Steve Jobs which I find very empowering:

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.
Almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or
failure–these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. 
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

Brandi is in the Saatchi gallery. She lives and works in Canada. If you dig this as much as I do, here is my special link to purchase.
