Milk and Honey, oil on canvas, 16″ x 20″, 2003 – private collection
Milk and Honey was the first painting I completed. I finished it in 2003. Eight months of full time labor on this piece, working on the floor of my bedroom in Austin, TX, resulted in an image of a woman in sweet ecstasy with herself. This painting was inspired by a photograph that was taken of me in the Red Sea, Eilat, Israel. I had put my long dread locks in the water and flung my head back, spraying an arching crown of suspended liquid. The colors and shapes are representative of the heart. She stands in an infinite sea of roses, and liquid spiraling shell shapes, colored to imitate the sensual tones of the vagina. The peacock feathers tell of a beauty that is self aware. This piece is intended to express the ecstatic state of one who is fully aware and comfortable in her own beauty.
