“Being an artist is a very rich and self-directed life. The rewards are great because you are living out your own vision, but you have to work very hard at it.” — Beverly Fishman

I am what is around me

Self Portrait, 2011, oil on board, 8 x 10 inches

“Theory”

I am what is around me.

Women understand this.
One is not duchess
A hundred yards from a carriage.

These, then are portraits:
A black vestibule;
A high bed sheltered by curtains.

These are merely instances.
