Oil on Linen with Gold Leaf 16″ x 20″
Beginning 1 & 2
Hair: meaningful in so many traditions and cultures. The way that we wear it may be a statement, a passive rebellion, an identifier, an obsession, a tabu or even a code. It’s a point of pride and a worry, and it’s oh so personal. It’s meaningful to me and so much fun to paint. That’s why I wish I had kept this piece simpler, as in the early stages (directly above). I may go back and make a drawing or an alla prima of this composition in the near future.
