Tim and I went to see this exhibition of Millard Sheets on Friday. It was quite comprehensive and I liked the enthusiasm and optimism of the work. I was very inspired by the exhibit and I loved the way he worked in both watercolors and oils. I wish there was more information about where some of the pictures were painted and his painting process. There was a lot of mythic story telling.
I don't know where these african-american ladies were painted and what their story is - but I will do some investigating.
