This painting was purchased by my Dentist Dr. Richard Crowley of Newark, NJ. By the way he is a great dentist. If you want to see the painting it faces his patients as he skillfully works on their teeth.
After He purchased the painting the watercolor won first prize in the Union New Jersey Arts Festival so he got a double find.
This is a painting I made of Rosie before she became famous. Here she is in a reflective mood. I don’t know what she was thinking about at the time. Perhaps it was preparation for a speaking gig or what book she was planning to write.
She is still in a reflective mood. Now, she is often thinking about blogging. Her blogging has really been taking off, and her openness has helped many other bloggers get there start in the blogging arena as well. You can visit and share on Rosies Boomer Review.
Perhaps she will do a review of my site, since I am a boomer also.
This painting was part of and article in American Visions Magazine published in 1987 the subject was: Building The Future For Black Families. Other artist included were Jacob Lawrence, Henry O. Tanner, Elizabeth Catlett, Varnette P. Honeywood, William H. Johnson, Patrick Morelli, and Pheoris West. This was a good moment for me to be included with so many well known artist.
