I am in awe of the story of Wonder Woman, a strong feminine figure who my two daughters can look up to. Wonder Woman, also known as Diana, is the daughter of Queen Hippolyta, the first child born on Paradise Island founded by Amazons. Diana did not keep her identity a secret, and fought to become known as a “super-heroine”. Indeed, her character was in many ways that of a babe in the woods, innocent and without guile. She had to learn English when she arrived in America, rather than knowing the language intuitively. In my painting she stands as a warrior ready to use deadly force when called for and positioned to force her enemies into submission using the Lasso of Truth.
