Morning by Chaline Ouellet is an expressive portrait of a woman done in acrylics without a brush. The painting was done as a memorial for the loss of a brother. Her eyes are closed to express reflection and thoughtfulness at her loss. The title of morning rather than mourning expresses hope through grief and the bright yellows and oranges are symbolic of a new morning. The painting is highly textured and very spontaneous in application.
