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. The audio file included with this post features portions of the interview with Betsy. Thanks for stopping by!
Special thanks to Stefano Vita for use of his music in the audio recording.
