    "Adolescence" ORIGINAL PAINTING!

    This original painting is the first in a mini-series of 4 self-portraits that show stages of learning a new gender identity. This stage mirrors traditional adolescence as the individual learns how to dress, act, and think in a new role. Full of trial, error and awkwardness; many decisions are made based on superficial concepts of what they should be. Painted in acrylics on a 30" x 48" canvas, this piece would normally go for $3,400. This is the painting that inspired the whole Gender Portraits series!
