Artists Magazine Over 60 Contest winner!

My painting Three Women is featured in the April issue of the Artists Magazine.

Oil painting of three women, presumably a mother, grandmother, and daughter. The young daughter looks out over a small mill town in a valley; a large thunder cloud looms in the distance. The mother, dressed in scrubs or other working clothes, hangs a sheet up to dry. The grandmother, seated on the steps, looks directly out of the picture at the viewer.

The caption (based on my more verbose submission) reads “Three Women depicts three generations of women, suspended in a moment of existence: the daughter is bursting to take flight, the grandmother is soon to leave this world, and the mother is fully occupied trying to hold their world together. Each has her gaze fixed on her own future, and an approaching storm has different implications for each of them.”
