About this piece
The day after her passing, I painted this portrait. Painting for me is a way of coping and honoring a loss. Painting someone's face is a great lesson in listening and is so instructive. I have the feeling I am learning about and reading her story--I experienced in turn the piercing intelligence, the softness, and the steely determination. Faces are never still for me when I look at them, and that animation is part of what comes out. Hope it can find a home in the world where her spirit will continue to inspire.
