The teenage girl. She's riddled with complexities! This girl, depicted in this painting, is no exception. She's not quite a woman, not in every way. She's relatively new on the journey of life. She's self-conscious. She's brave, yet trepidacious. She's smart, yet naive. Males who are in touch with themselves, share many of her feelings. I know, I did! I was a veritable basket case at 17. This piece is called, "17". Maybe you recall being 17?
This painting speaks of all those crazy and wonderful "17" type things. To me, being 17 was like a strange land filled with unseen spirits, ghosts of every positive AND negative entity. There is power in youth. The power is in the pudding. ;)
