Morning Market: Women of Arusha, Dharamsala, Lijiang, Tloculula, Ubud, and Xochimilco

An Exhibition of New Paintings
Concord Free Public Library
December 2006

My oil paintings portray the daily rhythms of women across the world in morning markets   I am particularly drawn to the special grace of these women as they attend to the ordinary tasks of daily life. My paintings explore the movement, color and light of their lives through pattern and texture.           

Twenty-eight years ago, after spending six weeks in Bali,  I  began painting images of Balinese women in the morning market of Ubud.  Since that trip, I have traveled with my husband and children around the world.  In each place we visit, we seek out the morning markets.  Each time, I am struck anew by the tapestry of light and color that forms the backdrop to these womens’ lives and continue to be moved by their grace and strength.  In my paintings, I try to capture the ordinary daily moments in the lives of these women as they gather at the morning market.
