Artist’s Statement Finding myself recently widowed and living in Frogtown was an exciting but also frightening experience because I was on my own for the first time. I supported myself with the rent paid on property I had bought when I worked in real estate. I had two views from my house on the corner, and I painted them over and over, in all seasons-complete with garbage trucks, drug dealers, cats and dogs, police cars, school buses, and usually with St. Agnes in the background. Neighborhoods have a vitality of their own. In the 15 years I lived there, I appreciated the spirit of Frogtown and the variety of the population-every nationality imaginable. One’s privacy was respected, but I felt a real kinship there.
