This is a large oil painting on canvas, 3' x 4', another unconventional portrait, this time of my son. I placed him in a small bathroom surrounded and actually crowded by colors and objects that represent femininity. I was thinking about how children outgrow us, about the idea that one of the main functions of a mother is to be left. I liked how his 6'2" frame barely fit into the tiny space, and how even though the light flooding in the window obscures his features it is still a very good likeness of him.
