Cynthia and a ray of sunshine.

When my son called to ask about a work that he remembered me painting many years ago I looked again at it hanging on a wall of my home. The model who was a friend has passed away, my memory of working in another friend's studio, for this is the largest oil on canvas I've ever done, came back. This was in the early 80's and although it has been many times admired I kept it.  I called it my "Lucian Freud" in admiration of the painter who died this past year and had made figurative painting once again fashionable.
