WOE is BLUE
WOE is BLUE - Watercolor 9" x 12" - This drawing represents many things to me. The attire of the woman reflects she is battered - note she wears an apron as well. I intentionally painted the bench BLUE with the worn/aged slats to show her pain, anger, frustration, and despair are being absorbed by the bench...leaving her with no color...lifeless...The reality is that this was an actual colored photo taken of a woman in Spokeane. I only drew and painted what I saw as an artist...simple but a stripped state of being.
