Egyptian Princess

Updated: Sep 13, 2021

Artist's Statement:

In previous posts discussing the way I use charcoal sketches as prototypes, I have mentioned that sometimes a prototype teaches me that I want to make changes when I turn to oil on canvas. The charcoal for this painting did not do that. Instead, the charcoal helped me bring out in oil the solitariness and reserve that characterized and befitted her as a princess and daughter of the Pharaoh.

But there are other words for privacy and independence. They are isolation and loneliness.”

People who smile while they are alone used to be called insane, until we invented smartphones and social media.
