Oil on canvas.
This is a still life meant to capture the mind of an addict and the reasoning behind such life choices. I believe that one is strongly influenced by the actions of their parents and can often times be highly detrimental; thus the title of "Mother".
The artwork is layered with Gamblin Gamvar varnish that allows the painting to 'breathe' while it dries. The varnish can be safely removed later in time if a permanent varnish is wanted.
