PORTRAIT COMMISSION OF LOIS AND MARY
Lois and Mary
Oil and wax on ampersand board 16 x 12 inches,
"The artist paints most of these portraits from the back, where the slump of a woman's shoulder or the attentiveness in a dog's alert stance can speak volumes about the bonds of a cherished relationship. The artist luxuriates in the color white, balancing myriad subtle shades in both the clothing and the dog's fur. The portraits are set against a background of soft gray, thrusting these relationships out of the temporal and suggesting a connection that is timeless and enduring"
