Ou Pi Bon Ne (You Better Knot)

Women are often told to not come across as intimidating. To downplay their strengths and not be so bold. When painting this I said f*** that! Being apologetically yourself is the energy I gave this portrait. It's ok to be your bad ass self. My hope is that this painting helps the viewer feel as confident as she is. I added papayas into the background to dare everyone to be as bold as they are.”
