Waiting for the number 16

Here is my new painting, currently on display in the Ingram Gallery booth (#302), at the Toronto International Art Fair. The piece has been sold, but do go check it out if you are at the art fair!
I am moving into a more narrative direction with my work and I had a lot of fun with this one. The model is a brilliant, politically aware and grounded teen named Anya. I saw the house in the background in Huntsville last winter- while tripping around our favourite part of Ontario. I don't know yet exactly what this piece means- but it has something to do with stepping out of chaos, being unsure, but still strong and moving forward.
