The Librarian

The Librarian  Oil on Canvas  54x48"
 I painted The Librarian as an homage to today's liberated woman. She is free from eyes that demand demure chastity and is undeterred by modern society's image of a perfect body. She sits comfortably on a stool, enshrined in a pink diaphanous light emphasizing her sensual nature that exudes femininity. Gazing upwards toward the light she is connected to eternal strength and confidence to endure the harsh realities of life.

My inspiration for The Librarian is the centuries old Venus of Willendorf

and Ingres "Valpincon Bather",
