"Surround Space" by David Kidd. Watercolor, 28x38 cm (11x15") on 150 pound 100% rag paper.
To understand a person we look at posture and gesture. I see the lady in this picture as a body surrounding an empty space. Above that space is a face we cannot see, yet the leaning of her neck and shoulders shows a hoping for a beneficial goodness that will come into her arms, yet her chest is holding back kindness until it comes, whilst her arm is raised with a power that gives her security.
