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 x 30 inches, oil on paper, and was begun in 2016.
