Oil on Panel
This is one of my laundry series. She has been coming into my work for years and i can actually trace her back to when my third child was an infant and he is 13. This piece shows her facing the wind and staring into the distance. Often I will paint her while I am between series of works and she is always a joy to paint. I am not sure where she came from but I appreciate her greatly.
People ask me all the time about the no faces in my paintings and it is simple, the specific face is not what is interesting to me, it is the fact that it represents all people or capturing one with a few simple strokes of the paint. THAT is fun, but worrying with all the features when my interest in is the scene is just irrelevant to me. When anyone sees paintings of my kids that I've done they are stunned to find that I can paint a face because I guess it seems like I can't when it is just a choice.
