FACES OF WOMEN
I have always been drawn to faces and did quite a few portraits when I was in school but thought that time was over. I was surprised to find out that in fact I am just getting started. Painting the faces of women, especially of those I have loved and known make the act of painting feel very intimate and in fact political. These pieces scream don't pin me down! I wont be easily branded for I love all manner of painting and this could be a phase or it could be a new beginning, One thing for sure, I need more paint!!!
