Maurine Among Her Sheep

Pistol River, Oregon

My friend Maurine O'Connor is an accomplished artist in several mediums, and is a superb abstract expressionist. Although she has a perfectly comfortable house in town, she prefers to spend as much time as possible at her unbelievably remote ranch-- without a telephone, without electricity, and with-- as she calls them-- "the bubbas." (Known to the rest of us as "sheep".)

I am currently working on a painting of Maurine and her sheep. It will be called "Marie Antionette Revisited".

March 27, 2006. Maurine O'Connor died today from lung cancer. She was a painter, a spirit, a force of life, and wherever she went and whatever she did, explosions of color accompanied her.

It was only fitting that this day ended in a sunset that had been splashed with all the vivid hues Maurine so loved. I like to think that as she departed, on her way through the door she paused to paint the sky.
