One of my earliest figurative paintings, this one gets its idea and annotation (unclean) from a concept introduced in the Old Testament that a menstruating woman was unclean and not to be touched. A poem published in Nashville Review begins —

the blood between my legs
spills like wine
grab your umbrella
your long-stemmed glass
this is life
holding a hand
to its ear…
