New Painting


This is a painting I just finished.  It is part of a series of paintings including my son.  I hesitate to call this a portrait of  myself and my son.  It is more of a modern “mother-child” image.

The title is “Pride”.  There are peacock feathers in the background.  I happen to have a tattoo on my arm of a symbolic peacock feather.

Cape Cod Museum adds “Sisyphus” to Permanent Collection
