Throwback- oil figure study

Just found this figure study in oil from when I was 19. While im not too impressed with my younger self's preservation skills (Crumbled up and off the stretcher bar) I am impressed with the painting skills.

the lone red painting and me

 

This photo was taken the week after I left Hawaii.  Most of my work was left at galleries in Hawaii, however I did bring the tiny red painting that I was working on the moment I decided to leave.  That same week I received a call from the Bay Area Vagina Monologues asking for a donation. Even though we had never met, they understood me and what I had been through just from looking at my work. Their fundraiser had "Red" in the title so I thought my lone small painting would be perfect so I sent it to them. You can see this painting on the right, behind my left shoulder.

 

I think artists of all kinds feel the most vulnerable when they are truely understood.
