before i made these silkscreens of my daughters, i had not painted or drawn anything for about 12 years. when i started again, the first thing i did was cut stencils from acetate. a tedious and painful activity. i captured them at 15 and 16 years old, when melancholy and angst had them entertained. i don’t know why i would choose to preserve those particular moods. although i am very familiar with them myself, and i am a long way from 16.
maybe it was just the lure of free models.
