The Swimmer – Oil on canvas 30×40″


This is my favorite painting, the first after many years of residency and school. The oil paints were uncapped after many years of neglect. There was no model; the swimmer came from the depths of my mind and she emerged onto the canvas as if I finally let a part of myself go free. Oil on canvas 30×40″ 1998 fig. 5379
