“The Creative Mind” is a portrait of my dear friend and teacher, Rose Ann Samuelson.  The Hair represents her series, “The Guardian”, the barbed wire her series, “Cabaret” and the Queen of Hearts her series, “Alice in Wonderland”.  The unusual pose and elongated  fingers represent the influence of Picasso, and the gold patterned tablecloth the influence of Klimt.  The tarot cards suggest her infatuation with depicting the darker side of life.  Each of the other figures are part of her story, including Charlie, her beloved beagle.
