Information About The Painting, Waiting

Waiting, 1974
45 X 55 inches
oil on canvas

I was enthralled when I first saw the 1933 photograph by Dorthea Lange, of the White Angel Bread Line. (So called because a wealthy San Francisco woman paid for it.) I loved the shapes and imagined what they would look like in vibrant colors. I was so taken with the image that I thought it had to be large and am real happy with the way it turned out.

I often would paint at night. Here is a photo of me painting, Waiting.
