New Painting

New work....

Trapped, oil on canvas, 50x60cm/20x24" (excl. frame)

The painting was inspired by the choice many women make, of being at home and taking care of the children instead of going out to work and develop a career. While they happily make the choice many feel trapped at some stage in their life, trapped by the expectations of being feminine, beautiful and attractive (the lace underwear), while also providing a home, raising kids, cleaning and tidying (the rug in the painting), but not being able to develop themselves mentally in a career. A feeling, I am sure, many women recognize.


  1. A wonderful painting with a very good idea behind! I agree, many women can surely relate !

  2. Thank you Jane, I am so glad you like the idea.
