People often ask me why I paint women. This piece repeats a pattern that often surfaces in my work. Women become visible through the shapes and colors that I lay onto the canvas. I was happy to greet this woman and connect with her as she sits seemingly unaccompanied by another. I appreciate moments of solitude and peace within the uncertainty and unpredictability of life.
