Artist's Description

by MARTHA WADE
Original Acrylic on canvas, 60″ × 60″ (5×5ft)
2008 ($7,500)

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.
