Petrouschka oil on wood 42 x 58 inches 1992

I began painting "Petrouschka" shortly after arriving home from a traumatic trip to place Mother in a nursing home in a very small Illinois town. Their experience hadn't prepared them to cope with a unique, intelligent woman hopelessly out of touch with her reality. Then, a few days later, I was told she had terminal lung cancer. Petrouschka is a puppet character who led his life on the puppet stage and another life off of it, romantically involved, but alas a loser in love. My mother was married three times. She was also a pack-a-day smoker.
