The top half of this piece was inspired by one of my favorite artists, Cy Twombly.  I adore the freedom and repetition in his work, and tried to emulate his colors and spontaneity in the upper, abstract portion. I have become more fascinated lately in what it means to be a woman, how I feel about it, and how it defines me but also allows me to relate to other women throughout history. The painting is varnished and ready to hang. The wrapped edges are white.
