About The Artwork

For lack of a better name, we came up with the name, "The Heavy Sleeper". The person depicted, whom can be a woman or a man, depending on what you're motivations and reasonings may be, can be either one, or both, in fact. However, I remember painting this due to a female friend I had whom was a heavy sleeper. And yes, I had plenty of nude models in my day, from short to tall, and large to small, and everything in between. When you're an artist, there are people who'll flock to you so you can use them as your models for paintings. We've recycled a nice old frame and put the painting in it, to protect it, it has a mat, which makes is look much nicer. We're ( big on recycling and reusing, repurposing and reimagining. For, we only have one planet, this one, the one we're living on right now, that's it! So, we might as well make best use of it, and reuse as we need.

My last painting, thus far, was just recently completed in September 2021. As of May 2021, at 97 years of age, my desire to paint lives on, even though I have trouble seeing properly (Macular Degeneration) and my hands are a bit shaky from time to time (Essential Tremors). Nevertheless, I still managed to finish this latest painting, a landscape, with fields protruding from below a majestic looking column of colorful clouds glowing in the vibrancy of a fiery sunset. Seeing as I have trouble with my hand trembles, I have to complete my work by using the 'daubing' technique, however, not in a careless manner as the terminology may suggest. I plan to outlive my mother, whom lived to be 107 years of age. To do so, I must try to find forever homes for some of my larger and most coveted pieces of art. I've always said I want to donate all the art I have in my possession to an art museum that'll agree to display it from time to time, when I pass away. Yet, finances dictate I should try to use my artwork to better set myself up for the years ahead, if I do indeed plan to live in my own home for the next decade or so. Hence, putting some of my children (original works of art) up for adoption to a new loving home and future.
