Reluctant Temptress ~ Original Pastel Painting

    Eve was doomed from the very beginning.

    And yet, is there not some beauty in almost every person? (I would like to remove "almost" but fear I might sound too idealistic - ha!) So, this next pastel painting comes from another one of my explorations of the duality in our humanity. Imagine a modern day Eve (any woman actually) who follows her passion, but hesitates as she is reminded of a cultural weight. The future might be full of love and family and even fame (in Eve's case), and yet, that apple . . .

    I do not know.  I could go 'round and 'round with all interpreted meanings of my latest pastel painting (and the bible). Sometimes an apple is just an apple . . . It will be more interesting to learn how YOU feel about this image.

    Extra note: Wonderful to have this opera singer Caitlin pose for a drawing. I met her while I was street painting in Florence, Italy, and asked her to sing at an art exhibit in which I had some work. I had not heard her sing, but how many people will say that they have performed more than once if they suck? I took a chance and got permission for her to do her thing ...and she was AMAZING! I do not know much about opera, but she definitely made everyone stop looking at art. Such a presence and what a lovely voice. Here, I painted her as Eve, the reluctant temptress [for who would willingly accept that job?].
