How did I get here? I'm working on a series of oil paintings that are mixed memories - ie family memories based on B&W photos taken by the late, great, E.A. Autrey in the 1950s and 1960s juxtaposed with more recent color photos I've taken. Various mock-ups happened, then several painting versions were done until the minimal plaid dress (top) is all that remains. 5x7 oil on stretched linen.
