Mère à paris!

Updated: Aug 10, 2019

Rummaging through photos in my files I came across this one of my Mom in the late 70's while they lived in Europe. Felt like it was calling me to paint, so there you have it!

In the studio shot of painting

Short and sweat - paint looks like butter! The simplistic basic shapes and brush strokes convey everything I wanted to. Very loose allowing the bright red underpainting come through.

Heres to a wonderful, beautiful Mother!
