Watching...Waiting

Today's painting is my statement about the millions of women worldwide who are subjected to violence, treated as second-class citizens, and in many cases virtually invisible. I call it "Watching...Waiting," I suggested masks over their faces to represent the invisibility.
The painting itself is done on a 5"x7" piece of Arches 140 lb. watercolor paper which I prepared some time ago in the manner of Gary Lipscomb as he describes in his book "Watercolor: Let it Flow," where he uses a very wet-in-wet watercolor technique for the background. I explained this technique in one of my earlier blogs, if you are interested. (Tuesday, May 26th, 2009)
