Portrait

2012 ArtPrize Entry
Save

I have titled this work "Portrait", however there is another title which is known only to me..... People have seen many different images in the work, and I will have a notebook available for people to record their reactions When I display art, it's all about the interpretation and reaction...good, bad, or indifferent - it's all reaction, and all good...... For me, this work shows (in the lion's image) a strong, capable, brave person...facing the world without fear or hesitation. This is a part of who I am. On the right side though, the image is splintering and floating away into the shadows. There is another face there, one that's in pain. This is also part of who I am. Overlaying this image is another...that of a Phoenix, created in string, which is painted to match the background painting. This work has been great therapy for me. Painting always is; however, this particular work has settled in very close to my heart. Tell me what YOU think!!!!
