Paintings

I have been painting a little despite my obsession with the chicks. These are both watercolors, small ones. The top one is from a photograph I took of Carol and Emparo in the lobby of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. I've painted the same row of people before in a different pose.....an acrylic that David has now. The other painting is of me as a little girl about three years old. There is a theme show this summer at the gallery called "When I Was Young" and I did this last week-end when I was painting with Diana. It's not a very imaginative treatment of the theme, but it will give me a piece of work to put in if I don't come up with something more exciting.

This one has a lot of undercurrent for me, but its symbolism is certainly not discernible by the viewer......pretend mother, pretend baby...........

I like the second painting. Good piece for the gallery, too -- pleasant enough on the surface, or something.

What a bummer that we'll probably miss all the gallery events this summer. :(
