Her Earthly Elegance

Maybe you know this woman. There is a lightness to the elegance of her strength. There is nobility in the artistry of her walk. Alone, strong & vulnerable, the odds stacked against her, adorned in her otherness as she bravely ventures into the unknown...
The playful pattern on the ground of this painting is inspired directly from one of my favorite sculptures of all time, Alexander Calder. Specifically his mobiles & stabiles have enchanted me since childhood.
