Maya Angelou – Still I Rise
Another in the series of ‘Strong Women’ paintings that I’ve felt compelled to do lately. Maya Angelou was such an inspiration – a very powerful woman. She gave voice to so many, hard to believe that at one time she did not speak… Though one of my favorites from her is The Caged Bird, the verse from Still I Rise was calling to me. So apropos these days. This is painted in a much looser and organic style than some of my previous ‘Famous Portraits’, but the message is still the same: you have everything you need inside of you…
