At Home with Betsy Rubin
I interviewed Betsy in July of 2014. She is a longtime resident of Hyde Park neighborhood. I choose to make a painting of this sunny corner of Betsy’s front room because it’s the place she most likes to spend time with people who visit her home. It’s also the place in her home where she keeps many special things, which relate to memories of family and important people in her life. Betsy even described many of the special things sitting on and hanging above the dresser represented in the painting. I was particularly moved by the way in which Betsy described those special things as connecting with relatives who have passed away. Check out a portion of my interview with Betsy in this blog post.
