This figurative painting is all about letting go and loosening up. My Curly Girl paintings usually feature very controlled brushstrokes, but for this piece, I opted for an expressive, painterly line. Wearing the shadows like a cloak, and surrounded by quaking lines, this Curly Girl is embracing a new, carefree feeling as she twists out of the darkness and forward to the light.  

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
