Portrait of Gertrude Stein

I haven't painted in a long time for numerous reasons. First, I had no place to do it and secondly, I wasn't really inspired. I'm currently taking a class on Gertrude Stein and for the final project, I decided to paint a few things inspired by Stein's lesbian erotic poem "Lifting Belly." This is a portrait of Gertrude along with a (seemingly pregnant) belly. I like the left side of the painting more than the right.

Expect a few more paintings to be uploaded in the next few weeks. I purchased some rather large canvas and huge bottles of paint. I'm about one third of the way through the first huge painting.
