Crooked Heart

Crooked Heart Series

The Crooked Heart series consists of 15 paintings on paper, which are in progress.  The series uses a divided format that I have found intriguing for many years– a larger dark lower panel with a light panel above.  The title refers to the poem by W. H. Auden, Walking on Bristol Street.  The lines are “You must love your crooked neighbor/ With your crooked heart.”  Each of these is 44″x30″, oil on paper, and was begun in 2016.
