The woman in this painting comes originally from the painting: Woman; searching home.
This painting is part of a series based on the original Woman; sola painting. Like variations on a song, each of the paintings provides a unique aspect of this woman, who has so much to say to us.
There is an interaction between the differing yellows that brings a liveliness to this painting. The shades of yellow were carefully chosen to create both a sense of movement and unity. The yellows were also worked to find the right sense of feeling through the relation with the blue-green color.
The blue-green color of the main movement is a unique color that I create, partially through mixing on the palette, and partially through glazing by hand rubbing layers of paint one on top of the other.
