the fitting amended

This painting is a little jarring on the eyes, but sometimes I feel I have to step out of my comfort zone a little. I felt that the lines emanating from behind her, although at first a playful way to cover my canvas, became very necessary as they complemented her unsettling gaze. To quote just a couple of my children’s remarks: ‘She’s scary.’ ‘She’s mocking me.’ Perfect!

*I changed it. I might change it some more. It’s like that sometimes.

  1. This is my favorite work by you. I think the overwhelming emotion in her expression and the flowing rays (reminds me of the sun representations of the Japanese flag~) in the background elevate the intensity. The challenge is good! ヾ(゚▽゚*)ノ
