Revisited an older painting I made back in 2005 [link] (I realize my link will say 2006, but that is wrong...)

The second title I had come up for with this piece was "Love is Blind", but noting the relevance of her being armless, "disarmed" worked on more than one level. The idea is a mixture of both those titles... The feelings of her being disturbing and decorative were consciously made to suggest how girls subject themselves to certain pressures with the notion of being in love. Some things are taken for granted.
(I'm liking the flat shape lately too)

10X20", Acrylic on canvas

Striking work. She's this teal hue, the shade of the blues, slow and swaying and somber, and often about love or love lost. One can relate to her, falling too hard and finding yourself with no defenses, often taken advantage of, and still seeing but half of the true scenario. Lovely!

You got it right on ; )

(Have to say, no matter how much I enjoy interpretations, there is some sort of satisfaction when someone catches the idea I originally planned. Thanks ~ )
