Dispossessed #1 is part of a series in which I rapidly apply acrylic paint to a slick thin paper, and then once the paint dries, I glue the paper to a heavier substrate to finalize the piece. The white space around the figure is as important as the dark figure itself.

The implied story in my painting remains open to interpretation. Is the figure moving towards something or away from something? The title, Dispossessed, aptly describes this ethereal figure and her place in the world.
