"Lalla Finds Her Wings", 88x36x3" was reworked in'21 after the long confinement of the Pandemic's lock down. Indeed, I felt liberated. This painting is inspired by another Ragain poem, "You Will Need the Wings of a Crane." I was drawn to his poem because of the story of the poet Lalla. "In bad weather, she was naked. She lived in her soul. She wanted paradise. What husband could give her that." This painting expresses a body partially landlocked. She is ready to fly away.
