"Second Hand Witness" 72" x 24" Oil Detail

I read the newspaper almost every day because I like to know what is going on in my community and the world. My childhood was defined by world events, and I have lived in England and traveled extensivly throughout Europe, South Asia and Japan. I feel a connection to the global community, and this is reflected in my work.

Imagine my surprise on Friday January 25, 2002 when I opened the Chicago Tribune and found my painting of the front of the Tempo section. I was exhibiting in the "September 2001" at the Chicago Atheneaum in Schaumburg with about 100 other Chicago artists. The painting is 72" high and 24" wide, this is a detail. You can see the entire painting in my studio.
