This is just a section of a piece that I have in an exhibition celebrating International Women's Day next weekend.
I find it very difficult working to a theme. Give me lots of restrictions on a project of my choice and that's ok. Tell me what it's going to be about and it is a struggle.
I'll post the piece in full after the exhibition is up (and after I have taken a satisfactory photo of the entire piece).
I struggled with beginning the piece for several days until I saw Shovels & Rope in concert. They are a local band now making it big. Ten minutes after Cary Ann Hearst walked out on the stage in her red dress, I knew I had the basis for this piece.
By the way, if Shovels and Rope comes to your town, go see them.
