"Tears Of Freedom"

Acrylic on canvas - 10" x 14" (25 cm x 35 cm)



This piece started innocently. Was trying to capture shattering image of a woman's reflection.  As I progress with this painting I suddenly had the feeling of being trapped. I felt sad. It became clear afterwards I was capturing a woman's loss of freedom. Trapped by her fears, her situation, her lost of control, not able to see a way out. That's when the title showed up. Each faces represents a tear holding mixed emotions. Helpless - Powerless - Rejected - Confused - Frustrated - Defeated - Scared - Insecure - Regretful - Numb - Bitter - Sad - Hesitant, you name it...
