"Sisters"
















8 x 10 oil on masonite




I was inspired to paint this after watching a movie called "The Whales of August" - It stars Bette Davis and Lillian Gish and tells the story of two elderly widowed sisters near the end of their lives, spending a summer in thier seaside house in Maine. The surroundings cause them to recall their relationship as young women, and the summers they had enjoyed there in the past.

It reminded me of my sister & I and the dreams we have of living by the sea.
