J R's Art Collection
I've always called this handsome painting The Grab. I'm pretty sure the woman who posed for it is Lisa Lacy. The guy might be Bobby Sox, although sometimes artist Georgia Stafford used guys to pose as women and versa visa. She was always obsessive about art and used whatever and whoever she had to make more.
This image seems the quintessencial depiction of too many love lives — not least the artist's and the owner's — hanging on for dear life, thinking we really have something this time. But at least one is blissfully unaware, staring off in an entirely different direction, being held, but separate and alone. Georgia told me she was always lonely. The oil on stretched canvas ( probably from her mother's canvas curtains ) is 48 inches square.
Note: this photograph flat out sucks. It is one of many in this section
that were originally shot on my early, low-resolution digital camera
and needs must be replaced by a version with better color and focus.
