The John Series
My work has always been based on my life at the time of their being painted. In this group of work I was trying to come to terms with the last years and then the death of my husband John. A very hard time for me. I always have used color to express feelings and the use of strong rich color dominates these paintings.
The Dogs of Progresso, Mexico
In this series I was trying to express something about the lives of the dogs who often wander the streets and beaches of Progresso, a small town John and I would go to in the Yucatan Province of Mexico. These dogs lead hard lives and I think they taught me a great deal about just getting on with your life whatever the circumstances.
