|Albatross - August 1973|
|Backwoods - July 1972|
There are many figures in this painting, which I take to be slaves in the south. At the centered is a woman and a man, with possibly a child to the man's right, and a seated figure in the lower right corner.
|Himself -January 1974|
In my mother's notes, I see an entry which must refer to this piece::
"Himself"? at Auction
|Suzanne - January 1974|
|Treehouse IV - July 1972|
Many figures are are evident in this painting. I sense a Native American theme in the profiles, which face each other, in the top, and the figure on horseback in the lower right.
|Vigil - January 1974|
A pensive figure. I do not know what the inspiration was for this painting, but there is a lot going on here. Under the main figure's right arm is a dark blue shape which is the habit of a nun whose downcast face looks to the bottom of the canvas. There seems to be a slim woman in a blue dress at the center. I cannont quite make out her head, though. A man's face looks right above the face of the main figure, and to the right of the main figure's ear, the blue face of a woman looking left in the direction of the man's face. At the middle left is a fence with an orange cat. Tenement windows are visible about the fence. At the woman's elbow is what appears to me to be a trash can, and in contrast to the trash can, a stained glass window glows above.
The dates refer to when the slides were taken, so the paintings may have been done some time before.
