I began this painting by drawing the lines, the ones you see in black, without any subject in mind. I found the figure and painted her with her pocketbook, I couldn't figure out what to do with the right side. My Mother said it was obvious that she was playing a musical instrument, so I took it from there and completed the painting. My Mother's name is Bertha, so I named it that. She said to call it, Big Bertha which was a plane in WWII; so this painting is Big Bertha.
