Gerry is one of the ten children to Barbara and she is mother to three. Gerry came into my life as a sister-in-law but immediately I considered her mine. Like this painting, Gerry is full of life, always up beat, positive and true to her words. I don’t remember ever hearing an unkind word from her ever. Her loyalty and devotion to the well-being of her family is the thread to her being. With a smile and a giggle she gives with her whole heart. Inspired by her devotion, I have used blue. When Gerry enters the room, all is good.
About this Collection
This is one of many small oil paintings in my series titled ‘Women’. They each represent family, friends and other women who bring inspiration in our daily lives. This project started out as a study for future color palettes for my larger paintings and emerged as little gems. At first when it came time to name each piece, I realized that each had their own personalities and reminded me of individuals that have touched my life in some way.
