"It's all a tragedy. It's just a matter of how you get through it. And the most interesting way to get through it is to say, I can't help it, I'm full of passion, and I'm gonna die at this moment." Charlene Swansea

This is Charlene Swansea.  She appears in Ross McElwee documentaries.  This is a clip from one of my all time favorites, Sherman's March.  I do believe that I would be happy camped out in front of her while she reads the phone book.  

I have painted her twice.  Below is a sketch of an unfinished painting that I am working on.  It's inspired by a scene in the documentary, Charlene.  Charlene hurt her hand while breaking her lovers window after finding out that he had been with another woman.
