I painted this for the Bright Future Festival. The theme was human rights and racism. It is based on four women I know/admire from different countries and I've put together some of their best features.
I love to hear others' interpretations of the images I make. Since no one will experience art in the exact same way as someone else, listening to these interpretations is very fascinating. Sometimes they have a similar view and get the same associations as I do, sometimes they are completely different and add a whole new dimension to the image.
One comment was that this image shows the four seasons. Starting with spring at the lower left corner, continuing with summer at the upper left corner (she looks tanned!), then comes autumn and last but not least a black and white winter portrait at the lower right.
