February 2021 Art News from Evy Okerstrom
Woman on a Bench
Emmy and her sisters grew up in a very artistic home. As far back as I can remember, they were always drawing and painting. Pen and ink drawings were my earliest recollection. Emmy would write letters and illustrate them with pen and ink. Going to museums and looking at paintings was also done wherever I visited. In the early years, Emmy painted with watercolors and I was in love with the medium. She was an excellent draftsman with knowledge of colors. When I asked her about color, she said I cannot follow a color wheel, I know what to do.
