The Strength of a Woman

Project type

Abstract Art


May 2023

This piece was fun but hard to finish and it went through many transitions. On reflection, it was the perfect journey for what the painting now stands for. The strength of a women. You might not always be able to see it, with women often being shown to be soft, sensual and gentle. We can be that, but I know we are also fierce, hardy and at time, brutal. So, the different layers, the nooks and bumps of this piece are here to remind you that whatever life throws at you, you can deal with it. Your journey isn't meant to look like anyone else's, so don't worry when things are different, lean into the change. Embrace it!

I cannot wait to interact with the person who will end up owning this piece and they too, will own a segment of my character.

Painted in Buckinghamshire, by myself, Maria Alexandrou
