Each painting represent family, friends and other women who have brought inspiration in my life. This project started out as a study for future color palettes for my larger paintings and emerged as little gems. As I began this project I started naming each piece after these women and I found them taking on individual personalities. I realized that each had a story to tell. Each had left an imprint to who I am. My stories are my tribute and my letters to each beautiful person simply saying just how important you are to me.
As I reflect of those who are no longer with me I found this to be an incredible experience. When thinking about Betty, Hilda, Velma and Barbara my tears fell like rain. I realize that this project will never end. There will always be people who come and go and touch my life in one way or another. To read their stories click here.
