"The model for this piece assumed a pose that cried out to be captured in paint. To my eye, Sherry “owned” the space she occupied in the studio with a quiet dignity and strength that evoked the indomitability of the human spirit. Her feet planted firmly on the floor, her head turned upward toward the light, her eyes looking beyond the present moment toward a future in which her resolve will surely prevail – what an extraordinarily powerful and compelling image! The opportunity to grapple with compositional elements and transcendent qualities such as these proved to be both a delight and a formidable challenge. "  - Bill
