Libbie is glowing.

“Libbie is glowing”, 40 x 50 cm., oil on canvas, 2020, is a portrait in a semi-realistic style. Here the sunflowers are abstracted away from the cliché of bright yellow sunbursts epitomized by Van Gogh, and the resultant copper color provides an almost wooden frame around an illumined face. This is a portrait of a strong woman with strong features, but whose inner grace and contagious smile exude immense Light, beauty, and warmth. In this sense, she is an archetype and an icon.
