Running for the Fences (Final Rework)

Oil on Canvas 40"x30" Collection of Rob Stewart. There are ghostly outlines of a fence showing through as Mollie ran in that direction. The painting was about us thinking we are free, when we are fenced in by our duties, expectations of others and even the image we have of ourselves. It looks like she might be running toward a red mark on the canvas. That was not intentional, but after she died, some people thought she was running toward a red light. That gave the painting a whole new meaning.
