Paige and Alei asked;
“Do you know the people in your paintings?”
Most of the time I paint people I know, but some of the paintings are from photographs that I’ve taken at events or on the street and I don’t know who they are. I chose the pictures for this series because they are familiar scenes in American Samoa. Mary (on the staff at the library) is friends with the cab driver in one of the paintings. She told him about it so he stopped by the library to see the result. It was fun to meet him and I’m sure glad he liked it since you just never know. Plus friends who are coming to visit might need a good cab driver, so I got his number for them.
