"maps autumnal (deja vu tennessee)"
acrylic on masonite, 11x14"
Hello everyone! I hope you're having a nice start to the weekend.
This is a piece I "finished" recently, but it doesn't feel finished to me. It's an image I had in my head a long time before painting it, but I feel like something is missing. I know she doesn't have as many symbols and objects around her as the girls I usually paint, but when I thought of her, I really liked the idea of this simple image. I might just give a little more shading to her face and arms to give it a more finished look. Any thoughts?
She is kind of a tribute to Tennessee Williams. I was painting her in the midst of reading his essays and watching films of his plays, and I decided she had the feel of one of his female characters (he portrayed females so beautifully!).
I saw Alice in Wonderland today, and while it didn't fully live up to my expectations (or maybe I just didn't know what to expect), I really liked it and especially loved Anne Hathaway as The White Queen.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
