The "Helen" series began in 2014 with the heroic, 64 x 95 inch canvas, "Just Kay and Patty", followed by "Lunchtime at Nickerson's" (pictured below), featuring Helen standing with her sister outside of the then-popular roadside restuarant, Nickerson Farms, with its signature red roof. Dressed to the nines, Helen is depcited in all of her fashionable glory, her patent pumps just inches away from a looming pot hole.
"Lunchtime At Nickerson's", 55 x 82 inches, Oil on Panel
The upcoming documentary will capture the behind the scenes story of Helen, her life, and the places and people in the slides that have captivated the artist and brought his paintings to a whole new level of significance.
