So far, I have 9 paintings in the America series, 5 of which are women or girls. I'm going to feature the 3 that I worked on today in this post, and follow with the two that are finished. I know Blogspot posts go out to everyone, all over the world, and I wanted to show visitors to my blog a good representation of who we are, us Americans, as a people.
Mehri is an immigrant who came to the USA many years ago from Iran. She is a patriotic American who owns her own business.
Caitlyn is 9 years old, and a student in the Washington DC Area. I love her colorful dress, her beautiful smile, and the way she's playing with the hem of her dress.
Anne lives in California. She has a disability that requires her to use a wheelchair for mobility; she is brilliant at writing and enjoys sketching.
Susana is a dentist. She is also an immigrant, and I have to find out which country she's from. She graduated from Harvard University, which is really something to be proud of.
Vero, as she likes to be called, is an artist; a printmaker, actually.
I'm pleased with the series so far, though it's very hard to get a decent likeness! And as soon as I get the first 9 or 10 done, I'm going to start another 10.
