"I'll Make You Shorter by a Head"

Medium: watercolor
Subject: mythic
Style: surrealism
Size: Width: 38 Height: 57 cms
Price: Sold
Notes: Watercolor on paper (1999). I frequently reference other artwork through mine, but perhaps none so directly as this. My title is derived from a direct quote by Elizabeth I, because she was a woman who had tremendous power and an understanding of how to use it. I wanted to armor my Judith with this power. I believe that Klimt painted Judith the seductress. I wanted to paint Judith the executioner. The original painting is in the permanent collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
