I do very few portraits, and this is outside of what I usually create, but in 2022 when Masha Amini was killed by the morality police in Iran for not wearing her hijab, the story hit me hard.

Some things are beyond comprehension, and I needed to do something to release the anxiety and sadness I felt about the loss of this beautiful woman, and the way women are often treated in this world.

I painted this painting from a news story about her, purposely leaving her eyes void of light.
