In the spring of 2007, the New Orleans Museum of Art hosted the show “Femme, Femme, Femme: Paintings of Women in French Society from Daumier to Picasso from the Museums in France.” After viewing the show I mulled over how I wanted to depict it as a dot painting. There was such a range of painting movements in the show I wasn’t sure how I would make a single representation.

After looking at the brochure I decided to aim for the leafy background colors of an impressionist painting. Then I superimposed a face over my background. The face turned into a struggle. In fact I had to put it aside and come back to it. The piece turned out a lot different from what I planned.


  1. Lana:

    Thank you.

    I appreciate your positive note on this one.

  2. It may have turned out differently than you planned, but I think it turned out really well just the same.

  3. Daisy:

    Thank you for the vote of confidence on this one. It was a painful process.

    Letting my intuition run the show usually works best for my art. But I still find it hard to do that.
