About the Painting:
The title for this painting is a reference to Judy Garland’s monumental portrayal of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz.
The comparisons between Judy and the beloved Dorothy are undeniable; two naïve young girls, both facing their fears and an uncertain future. Unfortunately, they have two entirely different outcomes – Dorothy’s protected by her dream, while Judy is destroyed chasing hers.
There was no other choice for me but to have Judy model Frank Lloyd Wright’s own Home and Studio. This cozy and inviting home emits a feeling of comfort and security. In the painting, we see Judy almost under the ground, suggesting a wholesome earthy young lady.
The large established tree grounds the painting, and lends a rooted quality to the piece. A bright blue daytime sky with trees in bloom sets an almost unattainable cheerful mood. Her soft violet sweater speaks to her youthfulness, giving her an ethereal aura.
This painting was all about the eyes. I wanted to capture a wistful hope for the future. The feeling that while dark unforeseen things happen in life, still, “There is No Place Like Home.”
