the artist Hoogy noticed at an early age that attention could be had by creating
pictures. Unfortunately, this became a mechanism that functioned
almost like a narcotic. Although everyone around her succeeded, Hoogy
slipped further and further into her own personal oblivion. Questions
of mediocrity constantly haunted her spirit and her time. Yet she
needed the escape of the paint and canvass.
the art Hoogy painted the same two scenes over and over again. One was a
reproduction of a New York neighborhood she had lived in and the other
the country. The New York scene always had a fruit, book, and candy
store. The country scene always contained a running white fence.
the beret Hoogy always wore a rather large beret because she found that it
concealed her eyes when she was in public. She could pull the hat over
her eyes and fantacize all sorts of greatness.
