I like your paining, because I can see the Artist hand has made the brushstrokes. I have seen Rubins and Rembrandts you don’t notice the brushstrokes but you do feel the passion of them. like music it comes from the hands. That’s why van Gogh has always been one of my favorites. The brushstrokes is the artist signature.

Mary, Mary//SOLD


I started this painting a while back, unable to finish until the current world situation struck. This was an original fashion photo advertisement for Armani clothing, in which I saw something totally different. Working in the mental health field and studying huan behavior, I was fascinated by this image.


After reading Margaret Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale, The Testaments, and Alias Grace and our current Covid-19 pandemic, I realized my dark fascination with the subject and finished my painting.

thoughts behind this piece: my husband, blues musician Johnny V Vernazza, had his own irregular heartbeat, pulling on his heart strings .
