"Guarding rococo" is a painting I just finished. By placing a painting by Vigee LeBrun behind a formidable nude figure, I not only reference the strength of today's women that seems in contrast to the delicacy, frailness, and decorative concerns of the past, but suggest these seemingly inherent feminine qualities are worth protecting.
I am a full-time artist since birth. Though I have two academic degrees in fine art, I consider myself self taught. My passion for drawing and painting is as great today at 74 as it was when in sunday school. My greatest lesson was to learn humility.
