Ages of Contemporary Woman

Ages of Contemporary Woman is a highly textured acrylic abstract on hardboard. Four ages are represented by the colors of white for innocence, red for passion, yellow for enlightenment and burnt sienna-black for transformation. This painting adds to the classic ages of woman as experienced throughout history (innocence, fertility and crone) to reflect the hard-won opportunities for personal actualization that are available to all women (not just an isolated few) in the Western world in the 21st century. This is the title painting for a book of my art and poetry.
