I started this painting with the idea of creating a powerful image of a woman in all her glory, not just the power of her beauty but also that of her strength .
I used red ink for the background as i feel it is the colour of strength and courage. For this piece I also tried acrylic pour of her silhouette which was quite the challenge.
As this piece progressed steadily and beautifully the news was being flooded with with the new abortion laws in the US. and all the outrage and point of views regarding this.
When i finished this piece I decided to title it "Iceland 1975" in honour and gratitude to the women who stood up then for their rights. And for the women today to be strong again.
