Mary Ann Conway in 1991

Mary Ann. Mary Ann was a quick, vigorous, competent and restless mother and business woman. Not surprisingly she chose the travel business and she was (and I suppose still is) always on the move. This was painted in 1991. Once at her summer home at Erieau, Ontario, I accidentally dropped a long cigarette ash into her pot of spaghetti.

Compare this with another painting which shows a more relaxed Mary Ann .
