Home is Where the House Is (Part 2) An ongoing series of paintings, all of uniform size, 14” x 18”.
Artist’s statement: I am currently working on a series of paintings of simple, ­ordinary houses, ones without grand architectural pretensions. Rather, their importance derives from the lives lived within them, of which we see very little. The houses are from a ­variety of locations in the United States and Mexico. They are, in a sense, the places we all grew up in, places of nurture, ­experience, trial, memory and forgiveness.​
