Painting by Cathy Woolley: Lady Girl

Lady Girl, 2004.

Impressionistic portrait of a seated woman with her arms raised on either side adjusting her short hair. The woman is constructed of broad brush strokes in a composition dominated by opalescent pinks, blues and greens. It is difficult to tell whether the woman is naked or clothed, but her powerful curvaceous body is clearly revealed.
