“Anneliese,” the name my mother called me as a little girl.  So this is a self portrait, inspired in part (the lattice effect on her body) by Jaume Plensa sculptures.  

Original canvas (2009) on the bottom, followed by several years worth of new explorations of color combinations upon “fields” layered on to the canvas.  It was originally titled “Jazz Blues,” a very bright canvas.  i like it much better now, with a more neutralized (and darker) palette, with a thick medium used with the paint to create a glazed effect.   It has been titled, “Jazz Blues,” “Juno,” ” #44″ and possibly even “Beloved” for a while.
