greta tillinger 1914-2015

my mother was more than the sum of the details of her life: born in Vienna in 1914, emigrated to New York City, lost her mother in the Holocaust, married, had a daughter, divorced after 36 years of a largely unhappy marriage.

avid traveler, voracious reader, New Yorker subscriber, Jeopardy fan. cancer survivor, critic of everyone and everything. occasional artist, infrequent poet. she was complicated and smart, difficult, unhappy, witty, judgmental (not least of herself). having outlived, by many years, a wide circle of friends. she died peacefully on March 15, 2015.

more Lautrec sketch @ MoMA

we warm up with 30-second sketches. sometimes these please me the most.

the rest are generally six minute sketches -
a perfect length of time
