‘Ruyoo Number 1’ © 2018 (Click on image to enlarge)
Acrylic on 24″ x 18″ watercolor paper
Although I’ve spent a few years studying Mandarin, I still can’t understand the language, much less decipher writing. The model, Ruyoo Jyoo, herself, told me that she wasn’t sure what the Chinese characters on her face meant. I was eventually told by someone that they mean ‘true feelings,’ or ‘real emotions,’ at least the parts that were readable (seems consistent with the expression on her face). As with recent paintings, this is a small work on paper, about 18″ x 24″ painted with acrylics. This seems to me a good candidate for a large canvas. I’ll keep you posted if it becomes such a thing. Or you can help me decide by commissioning a new project.
