This abstract figurative painting reminds me of the Victoria Holt books I’d devour when I was a young girl. Gothic, dark, mysterious and filled with romance and adventure…what every girl wants.
My favorite book as a young teen was “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte. I read it over and over again. There was something in it that I completely related to as a young girl and I loved Jane dearly.
This seems to be a theme I return to over and over again in my work. I feel empathy with my character. The heroine, alone, abandoned and dealing with unfair circumstances and cruel people who only want to see her fail.
I’m such a drama queen…
