Three Close-up Portraits of Women, from left to right, Bänoo Zan, Isabel Fryszberg and a Self-Portrait

These photos were all taken at different times, when each painting was finished, and they have not been protected with a varnish yet, after which I will photograph all three together and the colours will better reflect each other. Three Close-up Portraits of Women, from left to right, Bänoo Zan, Isabel Fryszberg, and a Self-Portrait ©Brenda Clews 2016, each painting is 16"x20"x1.5", oil on canvas.

On the Radio tonight to chat about Tidal Fury

Tonight I will be on the radio chatting with Nancy Bullis on "Tidal Fury" between 10-11PM EST. Catch the show if you can. She's an interviewer who reads the books of the authors she is interviewing and the conversations have depth. I love the lady. And so honoured she is interviewing me on HOWL! The book was published by Guernica Editions this year.

And a shout out to HOWL! Valentino Assenza, the other great host at HOWL, alternates weeks with Nancy - and being interviewed by him is an equal honour. Nik Beat, who sadly passed away in 2014, hosted the show for almost 20 years, and he is deep in my heart, as he is for many, many of us.

'Tidal Fury' is available from the publisher, Guernica Editions:
