“Amma” 24″ x 30″ 2008 Oil on Linen Canvas

This is “Amma”, the Indian “hugging saint”who I was able to see at her retreats a couple of times. I painted this from a photo.

“Marilyn” 24′ x 30″ 1998 Oil on Linen Canvas

This is one of the first Oil Paintings that worked. My process was to paint and if the painting failed I would tear it up and then start again, sometimes on a new subject, sometimes the same painting again.
