The female form is deeply entrenched within art history , more woman appear naked within an art gallery than as artists. This could be the ultimate feminist debate. Yet for me as an artist , the female form is delicious to draw, it flows through curves, softness and strength. Life giving vessels that are unique in every form.
I come back to the figure regularly in research and admiration. Acceptance of being within a female form may manifest as a self portrait series at age 50. 2023.
