Frances and Ruth
A painting of my grandmother and her friend Ruth. Using an old black and white family photograph as inspiration, it evokes a soft-focused stylized impression of the 1940’s.
I’m inspired by the trademark clothes of an era such as this one with the cloche hats, gloves and silk stockings. The women are the focus rather than the background. As if looking through the lens of a camera I attempt to capture the moment.
