Just trying to imagine myself back to Santa Monica, California. (The colors of my photo seem off. The suit is persimmon, beach gold, sky light grey-green and wall a warm gray.) I do like the solid feel of her body.
My path to this perfect artistic place was through folk art born of memories of my New England childhood. This art I sold to the White House, Panasonic, Toyota, Bigelow Tea, the Mayor of Boston and to clients of galleries in New York, Boston, Nantucket, Charleston, San Francisco and Los Angeles. My art was featured twice on the Today Show and in two national magazines.
Now I paint about strong women. In Greek mythology, women were as powerful as men. They were gods. I like to think, and my collectors seem to, that my painted women are their descendants.
