Wonder Bra, oil stick on paper, 30"x40" 2011-sold

I orginally created a drawing for the a Breast Cancer -Bra Show and follwed that up with this colored version.

The thought behind this drawing is one of wonder and power. What is this wonder thing that moms wear and how does the wearer gain power? Is that power lost? It is only kids playing with mommy's bra but...

I am a visual aritst peon living in sunny Sacramento. I care about children's issues and try to translate that caring to the themes in my drawings and painting

Themes in my work include the motifs of children and women and the literary histories that explore and explain the “why” of archetypes in our daily relations and beliefs. In our American society we have all around us believable truths presented in forceful visuals that attempt to explain or change the physical/emotional realities of our lives. My aim is to take a slice of that abundant dialog, explore the historical current of that theme and present it via drawing or painting. Or simply to talk back to it and enjoy life while creating art.
