Abstract yet even as she fades into the surface you can see who she is what what she is about. Nothing is hidden.

I wanted to do this painting completely freeform, without even thinking about the results. Instead of looking, I decided to feel my way through it. I’m pleased with the results.

There is beauty even in abstraction… breasts still curve and hips still invite. Sometimes, there is more beauty in abstraction, as details fade and the imagination takes over.
