Clear Skies Reflected in Bifocals Belonging to my great-grandmother, Elizabeth Ann Longstreet Parker (the light, the shade)


Clear Skies Reflected in Bifocals Belonging to my great-grandmother, Elizabeth Ann Longstreet Parker (the light, the shade)
4 x 6 inches, oil on linen on panel, 2016.

Today is Robert Lax's birthday (born: November 30, 1915, Olean, NY; died: September 26, 2000, Olean, NY).

This painting is part of my the light, the shade series that I began back in December 2012. I wrote about how Robert Lax was the inspiration for my "the light, the shade" series here. Generous support for my "the light, the shade" series from June 2016-June 2018 is provided by the Norman Johnston Fellowship at Arcadia University.
