My Last Hymn With My Mother.

                                                This painting was inspired by Mrs. Germans Funeral.   Every Dec. Mr. and Mrs. German delivered a tin container of delicious chocolate chip cookies.   Her name was taped to the bottom of the tin so that the container was properly  returned .   If her container was not returned you were crossed off the cookie list.     Returning  the round empty tin for the anticipation of next years chocolate chip cookies was always a pleasure ,because  it meant we could sit in her living room and enjoy  our annual conversation about life.

Weaving Color

                                         In this painting I worked on pushing color to define the interior while at the same time not being concerned with realism and letting the shapes stay  as they landed.

             This painting took on a life of its own.   Lots of movement perhaps because it is cold and I have not figured out how to stay warm .

My Eyes Have Seen The Glory

                       Still loving the Song Theme.    This is a painting inspired by the  book ,  Roll Jordan Roll.    The photographs are by  one of my favorites, Doris Ulmann.   I did my initial  drawing with a  paint brush attached to a stick so that my lines would stay loose and gestural.  Decided to keep the original lines and   monochromatic pallete with a few  hits of light paint .    Hoping your Sunday is full of Glory!
