This large Original oil painting was painted in 2017 and selected to show in the 2018 Utah Women Artist Exhibition.

Initially I had created this painting with a clear intent to just create interesting shapes and a clear design that carried the viewer through the painting to the focal point. I often find myself asking “What does this painting mean to me?” and It isn’t always clear at first. I wanted to invoke an emotion within the viewer. Mannequins are created in are image an ideal to become or look like. In many ways it makes me think of Pinocchio and how much he just wanted to be a real boy. Are we real? or do we have more in common with Pinocchio?

My color palette for this painting consisted of white, black, yellow ochre, cad red, ultramarine blue and purple.
