A tribute painting

Artists' Tribute

Artists’ Tribute

  • 12″ x 16″
  • Oil on Canvas
  • In the collection of JC

In 1971 I painted a tribute to my then boyfriend, now husband, Rob, on his 24th birthday.  A number of my paintings since are tribute pieces, illustrating  memorable times, people, place and/or things.

In Artists’ Tribute I set up an “in the moment” still life, an altar of tribute. Belle Johnson’s “Three Sisters” is in the foreground. She was a hometown photographer of my grandmother’s generation.  Georgia O’Keefe, Suzanne Valadon, Janet Fish, blues singers, all are paid tribute to in this oil on canvas.
