The Heart of the Matter (Paula Rego's The Family): 2009.10.31

Brushes App on iThing and Photoshop on macBook.
Directly from photo of Paula Rego's 1991 painting 'The Family'.
60-90 minutes.

This is my final take on this painting (at least for now). Although there is no scene exactly like this in my past, there is some sordid family sexual shenanigans that I've never gotten around to painting, drawing, or even writing about. So I take the story of this family to have metaphoric resonance as my family's story... and thus once again slip it in under my ever-expanding definition of self-portrait.
