“Cloaked in a Grey Morning”

Cloaked in a Grey Morning

In painting this portrait, I found this woman’s gaze piercing, and unsettling. By keeping her clothes and background grey and fairly neutral, I allowed myself to animate her face with color and intensity. Inspiration came from an old family photo of my grandmother as a child, sitting with her mother and grandmother – so that makes this woman my great-great grandmother.

    This is really an intriguing portrait. She invites questions of where she was born; what she has seen in her life.
