"Ordinary/ Extraordinary Women"
Honoring the extraordinary achievements of women in the ordinary context of their lives.
In 2006 I made a rug to honor a very special woman. Her name was Ruth Spring.
Ruth was a naturalist, landscape painter, and a wonderful person.
Inspired by my experience creating this portrait, I have chosen fifteen other women, from all walks of life, that I wish to honor. I've decided not to show most of these pieces in their entirety (although a couple have previously been exhibited). The plan is to display all the work at the conclusion of this project and to have a big celebration.
The series is called "Ordinary/ Extraordinary Women" and so far I have completed four larger than life portraits.
Keep checking back to follow my progress! (More photos coming soon...)
