THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Yellow Nude 01 painting showcases a nude woman lying on her left side and facing away from the viewer. The woman's long amber hair flows over her left shoulder and drapes down across it, while yellow flowers that mimic the color of the backdrop are placed in her hair like a crown-like hairband. Flower crowns often denote innocence and liberation; they stand for innocence, freedom and the relationship between the two. She lies contentedly atop a white blanket as she peers into the yellow field before her, furthering that sense of innocence and purity that this painting conveys.
