About "Ursula's back"
Ursula is painted from behind suggesting she is not looking at the painter nor listening carefully what is said.
Sometimes turning your back or closing your eyes is an excellent way of taking in advise from someone, you black out all the facial expression and stimuli from the person trying to warn you.
Ursula is standing still - therefore, she is listening, but her back is turned since she is skeptical of the advice. The painting illustrates a simple concept. The colors accommodate the message, and the technique suggests that outlined / cryptic details were used.
One cannot discuss a lot of detail in my opinion without making eye-contact, there is no frontal portrait here - hence, all personal eye contact is avoided in the painting. Ursula stares into another direction - she is still pondering her thoughts.
There is suspense in this simple painting - you don't know if Ursula is going to absorb the advice or not.
I was inspired to do this painting because my sister needed to get some advice from me but, soon enough, I realized that we all tend to make up our own minds about choices at the end of the day.
We will make "eye contact and turn around" when we are ready - just like my Ursula who symbolizes my sister - who is still deciding.
