Renewal: Works About Hope

Aja Dandridge


My newest painting “Protect My Energy” features a nude woman lying in a field of grass, where one side is covered in darkness and the other in full bloom. The different grass patches represent the dual sides of her personality and how they coexist within her, in perfect harmony. She’s at peace with herself.
