This is a lithograph I made of my Mom several years ago. It's drawn from my memory of her always working in the kitchen. On closer inspection you can see the letters A-R-T-I-S-T on her drying towel. She is one of the main reasons I make art today. She would take me to our local Brooks Art Museum in Memphis once a month.. We admired works by Ingres, Marisol Escobar, Bouguereau and Walter Anderson. She rarely had time to make art when I was little but when she did it was magnificent. Most of my current work is about her.
