why i paint what i paint #18

This is an oil study 12 x 18" on unstretched canvas of the bent over cleaning woman.  I have been looking a lot at Degas' "Dancers",  and how they,  also,  are often bent over and twisting their bodies in ways that cause them pain, but give pleasure to others.  It is Holy Week for me.  I am thinking about the necessity of someone else being broken for that I might have an easier life...or a life at all.
