This work is from CDVA…but I love the image, and I think it is worthy of it’s own post 🙂

 Red Ribbon, 2010
 Visual Arts – Option3
 Acrylic on Canvas
 30 x 25 cm

This work is a favorite as I suprised myself with what I was able to do with a paintbrush.  The subject matter is a womans torso, she is annoymous and obviously posing.  The simple palette of colours for the body contrasts beautifully with the bright red ribbon around her waist.  The ribbon may hide her private parts, but it actually highlights her femininity. The line with which she holds herself is long and lean, and overall the image is sleek and sensual.
