At this time of experimentation with figurative work, I liked illustrating themes dealing with the darker side of the human spirit.  This painting was a representation of the isolation and insecurity a person can feel when they believe that others are not supportive of them, often even trying to tear down their success.  Now, vultures don't kill their prey, but rather feed on dead carcasses.  The elevated figure with the vultures waiting patiently suggest that they are just waiting for her - obviously reveling in her triumph - to fall, crushed, defeated.  Rather grim.

The Vultures are Ready

 

I've only shown this painting a couple of times.
