Study for “Present”
Color study for a larger painting entitled “Present”. I enjoy some fun wordplay when coming up with titles for my pieces, words can sometimes provide deeper meaning to the piece. In the case of “Present”, I found that the dictionary definition of the word, whether used as an adjective or verb, gives the title a double-meaning.
Both definitions seem to fit, and to describe a different aspect of the Geisha and her role in society.
adjective – in attendance, here, (close/near) at hand, available.
verb – to bring, offer, or give, often in a formal or ceremonious way.
