She is rough and loose an unfinished. She is powerful, strong and beautiful.
The words written in the background are created through spontaneous thoughts, somewhat related to the piece. I have been exploring the what happens to your thoughts during insomnia. As a study, I recorded my thoughts during a sleep night and found they were all non-sequiturs. So the words "Maybe Something for the Wall" were my thoughts in the night as I was trying redecorate my own home. The words are slightly hidden and unfinished just like the unfinished thoughts that come and go through the night. I do not title the pieces after these words because they are not the most important part of the piece and are left to be interpreted by the viewer.
