Sandra Oh Portrait

It was always my intention to do 2 paintngs of Sandra Oh to exhibit together in the Loch Gallery's Young Painters Show in July 2008. The first one, which is very dark and full of pain and anxiety, made it into that show (you can find an image of at the beginning of this blog). The one above I finished a few days ago. I started it 4 different times, on different surfaces and with different materials. The painting became a drawing and morphed in many other ways as well. I am glad I held out- it became what I had hoped it would become. Sounds cheesy, but I think that the birth and life with my daughter made it possible for me to create something with this much light and space to breathe.
