Hannah -timeless Beauty
Mary Ellen Anderson
Painting - Oil On Canvas
Inspired by the famous 'dust-bowl' era B&W photograph "Migrant Mother" by Dorothea Lange, this updated colorized version shows the central figure emerging not unscathed but still undefeated from an unidentifiable darkness swirling around her. The bathing light shows a face of strength, determination, and humanity. Grace, dignity, and femininity in the figure's pose seems to shake off the darkness. A timeless beauty, undiminished by the mars of suffering or the carving done by the obstacles of life.
Mary Ellen Anderson is a contemporary American oil painter residing in Lawrence, Kansas USA. She is known for her oil paintings that blend ultra-realism and impressionism into a unique style that is reminiscent of Renaissance masters. Common themes are mid-west and western landscapes, portraits, and nature.
