This painting was created in 2014.  I was making a non-literal self-portrait for a summer art project for my Art League. I feel as a Mother and woman I am the strong mountain of my family.  I have peaks and slopes that everyone is trying to climb or stay atop. I also feel like I put on a show for the rest of the world to watch as I do this “mothering” thing.  I’m a little bit Vegas showgirl and at the mercy of having everyone tell me what I should be doing or what is best.  I adore this found image of this group of women with wigs and make-up.  I feel it represents my emotional vulnerability to be like the rest but underneath I am just NOT them. cropped-im-somebodys_ashley-walden.jpg
