working on my next solo show

i have been exploring art themes that center around the strength and innocence of children.  maybe because being an adult, with kids, and a job, and art career … is often overwhelming.  i remember what it was like to be a kids.  all the dreams i had, and still have.  many of those dreams have come through.  here are some of the first images from my latest series “childhood dreams and conquered fears.”

will be mainly working in oil on these, so they take longer to create and dry.  hoping to create 10 more paintings, and have my next solo show in August 2016. stay tuned!

alpha female
60×96″ mixed media on canvas
by Martha A. Wade and Reisha
$4,000

The Alpha Female is the dominant female in a group. A hard worker who is often busy, with little time to devote to those who are not genuine. This woman is usually sarcastic because she’s powerful and playful. She dates as many men as she wants or none at all, and is strong and confident. She is often the mother lion of her family, protecting her cubs and bringing home the kills. An intelligent, intellectual problem solver, she understands that being an alpha female is more a state of mind than physicality. At the same time, she uses her feminine and physical charms to her advantage. Often feared or terribly misunderstood by others – she prefers passion to romance, and integrity over bullshit.

This collection of paintings by Reisha and Martha A. Wade represents an ongoing quest to understand alpha women, and also themselves. This visual representation is dedicated to the lifestyles and characteristics of those strong women. The work showcases how these powerful women envision the concepts of confidence, sarcasm, power, play, and intelligence.

Both Reisha and Martha A. Wade have an artistic intuition that lends to the qualities of an Alpha Female. As women who write their own rules to life, they sometimes find themselves misunderstood or underestimated. It is important that their artwork celebrate the possibility of passion with freedom, coupled with unfettered creativity and expression.
