Woman Power is one of my favorite paintings that I’ve done. It has taken me a LONG time to put this one up, because it is so personal and special to me. This is the painting that friends always want to buy ;)

That was a hard year for me … I was a recent college grad, and single mom with a newborn baby.

This painting represents the darkness that was trying to overtake my life as I worked over 60 hours per week and tried to balance it all.

I wanted to paint myself as powerful and almost dark in a sea of water (I’m a Pisces fish) and use mostly blue because it is my absolute favorite color!

I added the blossoming flower at the top as a symbol of hope for the future.

    I can see why you are proud of this piece. The colours and shapes are stunning, particularly how it goes from dark to light from the top of the canvas to the bottom

  • Thank you so much Patrick! I am hoping to get a professional scan of this painting soon so you can really see the strokes! =)
