This is one of the most challenging and controversial of my paintings and I hesitated before loading it onto FAA. However, it is a deeply personal painting that took me several months to complete. I began it arriving home from my first solo show in New York which was heavily attended. I am a shy person (as is my character in the painting) and do not do well in crowds. Especially when the focus is on me. The painting is about being focused on and about being tied up in our own egos and self worth. It is about the way society treats those who they do not fully understand or who do not meet the, "norm". It is about our own feelings of self worth. Sometimes I felt as though this painting painted itself. She is cut above her breasts which is a practise that many indulge in to feel the physical pain in order to lessen the pain of the heart.
