Bird Woman

Bird Woman

This painting started out as a figure painting excercise in college. It was a male model. Years later I had several canvases of human figures that were, well, pretty static and boring. So I took my pallette knife and went to town. Out of that effort emerged Bird Woman. Say what you like about gender bending, but the avian figure has always been female to me. She reminds me of a Phoenix, rising out of the ashes of her past.
