Joshua Smith's avatar Joshua Smith

She (work in progress), oil on 8" x 10" art board. Most likely this was be in a 16" x 20" frame or a similar size. This is a portrait of my wife. She deals with chronic paint almost daily. She is one of the strongest individuals I know. This painting is a celebration of womanhood. This is a celebration beauty. This is a celebration of not only physical strength but of a spiritual one. With her head turned away from the viewer she shields the pain from them that she endures daily from her chronic issues. Not because is ashamed but because it is her burden and hers alone. With her shoulder exposed she lets the world know that she is beautiful. And in spite of it all she carries on with an unwavering strength.
