“Meez” series, the beginning

“Modigliani’s Mistress” really wasn’t supposed to be anything more than another of my oil/oil pastel abstracts. But, the initial lines, turned on-end created the shape of a Modigliani portrait.

She has perpetuated a series of “portraits” that I am calling the Meez series. Not direct self-portraits, but drawn from me, and they are all female.

Art for me has to be a constant learning process.
