Portrayal of Women

Composed and expressive, these women are the artist’s family, idols and models. Janis Wagoner attended the College of Art and Design now known as CCS.  She enjoyed being part of the artist scene by working at the Detroit Artist Market.  Janis was the recipient of numerous awards from the Michigan Watercolor Society and once had a solo show at the DIA. I am pleased to share these oil paintings  (my mother’s) in the gallery until April 30th.
