Yesterday, as I was finishing up this portrait of Eileen, I found myself dreaming up an idea for my next show...
I imagined painting a series of portraits of women who are inspirational.
In the portraits I would do my best to capture their strength... straight on and honest.
In my some-what delusional mind, I imagined that perhaps I could seek out a grant for this project. I could travel around and paint these portraits of women.
Men get enough credit, I don't worry about them.
Women, on the other hand, are still relatively new to this concept of complete self-confidence and inner strength.
I believe we seek it out in others, as a light to guide us. We know it when we see it.
I think we all have a desire to become strong, self-confident and self-realized.
To know what our strengths are, and how to use them to their best ability.
This is just an idea, maybe it's too corny or maybe it's a good one.
Of-course I would start my series with my friends right here in Bisbee.
