The Old Man’s Hat
In this painting, the female is both adult and child. This seems to be true of many of my paintings. Often, while looking at the face of a child, I have seen someone who can appear older and wiser.
The Old Man’s Hat is about reclaiming lost power in childhood and adulthood. My father wore a hat like this when I was a very young girl. This expression of taking back power is personal to my life, but also personal to the lives of all women. The male costume is merely a symbol. The female in this painting is in touch with and has embraced her own strength.
