I Want to Be Abstract Yet Irresistible

There was a day when looking at one of the portraits I had painted I sensed the woman was asking me a question.

"Could you make me less recognizable -- more abstract? I feel so exposed when people look at me. I want to be less open. I want to be mysterious and have an irresistible quality that leaves the viewer wondering who I am."

As an artist, I am always up for a new expression of life, so I agreed.
