"Pride" is a piece about the dynamic energy of the female form. For models baring one's body for a figurative painting, it is naturally vulnerable, so it takes pride in one's self to let an artist, especially a realism artist, capture it. I was also playing around with movement in the painting and wanted to capture a sense of solidity even with an obviously moving subject. Pride is an oil painting done on hardboard panel.
