"It's a Man's World" New Painting

It's a Man's World, 16x20, oil on canvas over panel
I wanted to explore further the idea of disguise, in this case donning on a man's persona. How would the world be changed if everyone could put on a mustache and instantly be equal?

There is whimsy and humor in this piece but for me there is a deeper thread about gender equality. My favorite works of literature, music or art can make me laugh and cry because life is funny and poignant.

You may recall my painting from last year on a similar theme? Click on the link to see details about Self Portrait With Beard. Do two paintings make a series? I can imagine visiting this theme again.

  1. So lovely Terry! So tight and so loose all at the same time.

    1. Thank you Karen. I am continually working on getting more expressive brush work but holding on to the realism. Thank you for being a reader of the blog.
