This is a great new painting.

New photographic prints have just been picked up after processing. Two friends, young Latino women, are anxious to see how they turned out. They sit on a low wall near a park and on the way home.

After quickly opening the envelope they scan each print and compare their feelings. Maybe they are photos of the new baby, or a boy friend, or last weekend's party. All are important memories to be shared and relived.

This painting was based upon photographs I took while painting near the central square of the colonial town of Patzcuaro, Mexico.

I think there is a lot of feeling in this painting "Sharing Memories." It is a situation that many of us have experianced, either as a participant, or by watching someone we know. I am very happy with how it turned out.
