In Her Future When She Wakes

Acrylic 18″ x 24″  2016

A maiden in white floats sleeping in a twilight sky.  Above her dreaming and virginal form, moons wax and wane in succession, symbolizing the cycles of her upcoming three or four decades of fertility.  Beneath her mysterious objects grow from a mossy landscape.  On closer inspection we see that these objects are all things that will probably be inserted in her body at some point in her life, in service to her biological destiny.  None of them seem to fit with the innocence of her young face and body.   I painted this not as a complaint, but as a reminder that women deserve respect for the hard work of our bodies in continuing the human race
