A Chill Wind that Blows No Good, Watermedia: Acrylic, 29X22 inches (FR)
Part of my wind series, the tree is from my grandmother's yard, but everything else is from my imagination. As a little girl I loved the trees in Mamaw's yard because their twisted and knobby character was evidence of their history. More than 100 years of life in a farmyard serving as everything from playhouse to butcher's hoist.
This painting one of 4 paintings that marked the beginning of a change in my recent work. Twilight is an attempt to capture not only
the physical imagery but the emotional myth of the Louisiana swampscape; the
eternal battle between dark and light, myth and truth.
