THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Amigas 02 painting depicts, in a rather abstract manner, the image of two nude women. One of them has been painted with a feminine pink hue while the other subject is depicted in a light, tranquil blue. The pink of the women to the left has seeped into the blue colors of the woman on the right, suggesting that the friends, or "amigas," are exceptionally close to one another, especially considering that they are touching. Long black hair flows outward from both of the scalps of the women and extends so far as to go completely off of the canvas.
