Another in the series of ‘Strong Women’ paintings that I feel compelled to do. 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…

Peace and love, Deb

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.

    Review for Maya Angelou Art – Still I Rise – Urban Art Painting

    This Maya Angelou piece is superb! The skill leveraged to create Maya’s indelible smile is impressive and one that I have not seen another artist capture so beautifully. The insertion of her quote from ‘And Still I Rise’ makes the piece truly special and will give me a positive boost every-time I am feeling down. Words cannot do justice for this masterpiece (in my humble opinion). I have pieces in my home from famed/legendary artist such as Hugo Scheiber and others, but this has become my new favorite piece! I wait in baited breath for it to return from the framing shop! Bravo Deb! I look forward to collecting more of your pieces and enjoying your mastery!
