The Writer (portrait of Anna in pajamas)

The Writer (Portrait of Anna in pajamas), oil on canvas, 24″ x 36″, April, 2011.

Over these past few months, my daughter Anna—prolific and talented artst, writer, director, dancer, musician–has been staying with us and I have had the rare opportunity to watch her work.  Seeing those comics and plays and flash fictions come to life is amazing….and it often happens in her cute pajamas.  It is also a great gift to have a fellow artist—a comrade in this strange and lovely work– in the house, working while I’m working .  She is my best consultant.  I love her, I love her work….and I love this painting.
