Mischievous woman, you chase her, but she can not be caged. Freedom is what she seeks and finds within herself. You are not meant to understand her, just observe and learn. She lives for her own secret agendas.
This painting has a long story taking place back in 2012. I had just started art school the year before and wanted to do some painting on my free time, so I decided to stage my apartment for paintings. I searched for a model online who was willing to do a trade and come sit while I painted. As I continued my schooling and time passed I lost contact with the model and put the painting aside, unfinished until 2014. I decided to take a look in my closet and revisit this painting, but didn't quite know how to finish. I worked on this painting over the next two years and finally came to a happy conclusion. I find that my best paintings take this journey through time where I put it out of sight for months or years then revisit it and make changes until I’m happy with the results. As the painting matures so do I.
This original oil painting was shown at the Bountiful Davis Art Center in Bountiful Utah for the Statewide juried show in 2016.
