I Miss You

I Miss You
14″ x 11″ oil on panel

Leslie had this reproduction of a Fra Lippo Liippi painting of the Blessed Mother as long as I knew her. She kept it close to her bed, especially in trying times. Les had an eclectic set of religious beliefs. She also loved Paramahansa Yogananda and recently reread his autobiography.

This still life includes Leslie’s glasses and her copy of Autobiography of a Yogi, her keys and icon and it’s all resting on one of her scarves.

This Saturday would have been Les’ 62nd birthday. Happy Birthday, Sweetheart, if you’re still following the blog.

    Hi Sher. I don’t have a listing of anything under that title. I did a series of pastel pieces with dogs as the subject during the 1980s. If you could send me an image or describe the piece I might be able to tell you more about it. Is there anything in particular that you’d like to know about it?

    Also, I’m always interested in the life of pieces after they leave me. Can you tell me how you came to own it?

    Thanks
