Art that explores female empowerment –
“The formula of happiness and success is just, being actually yourself, in the most vivid possible way you can.”
― Meryl Streep
As always I want to capture a feeling of the female spirit. I love the pose in this painting, drawing us into our own deep thoughts. A moment of self-reflection, self-love and peace. The woman here is still but grounded. She knows herself and is empowered.
The colours in this painting are quite a surprise in a way. The warm-grey background and light, fluffy bedding under her body create an almost heavenly atmosphere. This contrasts with the expressive strokes of vivid colour which hint at her deep feelings and passion. I wonder at what she might do on rising from this state; for she is truly powerful.
