Newd: new nude

I think I was feeling particularly vulnerable when this painting emerged. (oils, 2 by 4 feet)

Even if man loved her as a child, a doll, a decoration; even if she was warm in her house, safe with her children, would she not yearn for something more? She was, at that time, so completely defined as object by man, never herself as subject "I"... Betty Friedan, The Feminine Mystique, pg 81.
