Abstract of singer, Billie Holiday, who gave her heart & soul to the world. This piece is intended to speak of the rippling emotions inside an artist who exposes the self to the public. It was created/inspired by a varity of still photos, motion footage, written words, and most importantly - sound. It is a response to the question with in myself of how such a beautiful person could have so much distortion inside, yet still reach out and sooth the soul of another. This is part of a series of exploratons of the distortion of the human form and the music of the blues. 9"x12" acrylic on canvas, C.6/5/01
