The Artist at 40  oil  30: x 40″

From time to time, someone will ask me, “Why is it you paint women only?” Women, especially those who are the sort all of us know, are under represented in the world of art, and because of this, in the mid seventies I began what has become an ongoing narrative series that honors and explores the captured moments of our mothers, aunts, grandmothers, best friends, couples, women we pass in the grocery store, while on vacation, and next door.

Yes, I work with photographs; some I find in family albums, others in magazines, books and postcards, and more from snaps sent to me by friends. Most of the photos are black and white snaps, often faded, and usually very small in size. I choose my subjects by the personalities that emanate from the photos, and from this starting point the women themselves lead me in decisions about composition, color, background, even the clothing they wear and most of all, the stories they yearn to tell. Perhaps within you’ll see someone you know.

Paintings marked with an * are available for purchase.
