Female Icon Series

(post edit:  SOLD) 

(post edit: SOLD)

now available in my etsy shop

i've always been fascinated by women, and the power that women hold. women, creators of life, nourishers, care takers, home makers/tenders/keepers, career women, kissers of boo-boos, and the femme fatal.  so many roles. so much incredibleness in being a woman.

infatuated by the female icon, described as,

1. (Christianity / Eastern Church (Greek & Russian Orthodox)) a representation of Christ, the Virgin Mary, or a saint, esp one painted in oil on a wooden panel, depicted in a traditional Byzantine style and venerated in the Eastern Church
2. an image, picture, representation, etc.
3. a symbol resembling or analogous to the thing it represents
4. a person regarded as a sex symbol or as a symbol of a belief or cultural movement

women, iconic women, of greatness.  portraits of women whose eyes and faces tell stories.  so many stories to tell.
