in the studio...

...produced by Portland Community College, documents three former Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) faculty members, all established Northwest masters with accomplished bodies of work and distinguished teaching careers, at work in their studios. Former Portland Art Museum Curator and co-producer Prudence Roberts places these three artists within the cultural history of Portland. At age 90, Eunice Parsons is making the strongest work of her long career—collages created from scratch in a process as spontaneous as it is methodical. (26 mins.)

this is a 1953 painting in the collection of omark industries
eunice asked mark humpal for his help in locating it and after a couple emails and phone calls- here it is
mark took eunice to the the company's headquarters to see it and she was interviewed for their monthly newsletter
she was very happy to see it again and recalled that it is a painting of of her daughter's first boyfriend

living with eunice...

this is one of eunice's paintings in our dining room
it was a gift from the artist, or payment for services rendered
either way, it's one of my favorites and will always occupy a prominent space in our home
