This painting started with a thought about items lost at the bottom of the sea, and eventually evolved into this brave woman who shed her false pretenses, dove into the unknown, and found herself floating in a magical bliss. I wanted to capture an expression of knowing and serenity in her face. I titled it, “She Found Herself in Solitude”, as an homage to my abject joy in painting alone. The masks represent the facades we put on to appease the outside world. This painting is 36″ x 36″, acrylic on canvas.
