Part of the Red Series. I am working to convey feelings in this painting. Many of us have had the feeling of being dominated, overwhelmed or feeling powerless. This can play out in any format, relationships, family, work. In this painting we see a woman that is out of breath while the alligator is full, heavy and dominating her. I seek not to show anyone in a powerless situation, but rather to acknowledge the feelings of what it feels like to have a weight of any kind of oneself. The painting serves as a reflection and hopefully catalyst to produce change.
