My mother, Lillian, has just celebrated her 100th birthday! She is as smart, curious and funny as ever – quite an amazing and inspirational woman. Over the years, I have created several paintings of her. Here are two – as a young woman and when she was 96 – as well as a photo of her at age 100.
Visited #Philips Manor Hall in #Yonkers with my granddaughter, Louisa, and we were both impressed with the documentation about #slavery, especially in the northern states.
I had the pleasure of seeing Athol Fugard’s new play, “The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek” , currently at the Signature Theatre. This work was suggested by the life of outsider artist Nukain Mabusa, an aging South African farm laborer who has spent his life transforming rocks into a vibrant garden of painted flowers. The story is powerful and the actors are amazing.
