Self Portrait – Summer Time Sun
This artwork was a painting of myself in 2002.
The reaction of people who see this painting seem to automatically exclaim “Princess Di.” I think that they do that because of the down turned head and demur pose. I worked from a photograph that my good friend Paige Peter, (a photographer in Los Angeles) took of me in my back yard.
I love how the light touches her skin and creeps around the arm, bouncing of the heals of her feet and how it hugs her shoulders. It is a very relaxed moment, since indicated by having kicked off her shoes.
At this time in my life I was working on the series of paintings with people reading.
