Artist's description:

oil over encasutic, on cradled wood board; need no framing.This painting reveals the many facets and mysteries of this beautiful woman. Faces have fascinated me since childhood, but I don't want to paint just another pretty face. I want to express the power behind the face. Even though the painting is one dimensional, she is not. The colors push against each other, causing a powerful rhythm; a pulsing of energy that the viewer can sense. By painting with large brushes and a palette knife, I am able to keep the fresh and spontaneous quality of the subject.

Lamarr and Anthiel received a patent in 1941, but the enormous significance of their invention was not realized until decades later. It was first implemented on naval ships during the Cuban Missile Crisis and subsequently emerged in numerous military applications. But most importantly, the "spread spectrum" technology that Lamarr helped to invent would galvanize the digital communications boom, forming the technical backbone that makes cellular phones, fax machines and other wireless operations possible.
