Oil on Canvas, 36"x48": This is the first and the largest piece in my series, "Leap of Faith". I was inspired by the image of a diver taken by Russian photographer Lev Borodulin (1923-2018). I found myself drawn to images of female divers as I am moved by their bravery to propel themselves off of a stable platfrom into a freefall. It reminds of the risk that must be taken to acheive new frontiers. This concept inspired me to delve more deeply into a series I've titled "Leap of Faith". Please see my Jounal for further information on this series.
