AmusingIt's been some time since I've posted on my blog. I just came across an amusing quote while looking through my old American Art Review magazines..I'll type it straight from the column. It's a quote from Anna Lea Merritt, ..."the inequality observed in women's work is more probably the result of untoward domestic accidents...women who work must harden their hearts, and not be at the beck and call of affections or duties or trivial domestic cares...the chief obstacle to a woman's success is that she can never have a wife." Thought there was some insight there....but of course the world has changed and is changing since then. I now can justify a messy house. I mean, really, it can take the entire day to keep everything perfect and it takes more than a life time to actualize the art life.
I am posting my recent work...enjoyed painting it so much ...I am continuing on with many of these two young women, sisters. This painting practically painted itself. I just happened to be in the room. I love when that happens!
