Body of a Woman was inspired by two things. My gorgeous model, Amber and a poem by Pablo Neruda entitled Body of a Woman from his book, Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair. The canvas has the poem written on the back both in Spanish and English. "Body of a woman, white hills, white thighs. You look like a world, lying in surrender." My hope is that I have done his beautiful poem justice… Continue reading… 0 comments

All those people who came to scrutinize my work and surround me with their thoughts and comments. I understand that its good for me and constructive criticism is always welcome. However, I started painting Will You Still Love Me? the night I came home from one such opening. There must have easily been two hundred people in that small room and I was overwhelmed and emotionally exhausted. I took it out on my canvas, that night painting for six hours before I fell into my bed in the "late" early hours of the morning. For the next two months, Will You Still Love Me? painted herself.
