I casually started referring my abstract figurative paintings as story people because it just seemed appropriate. Luckily a friend pointed out that Story People is already a trademarked term. I guess I don’t really need to call them anything specific. I just was trying to differentiate them from my dolls and landscapes. So erase erase the idea that my figures are called story people from your mind. I will think of something else to call them but for now they are just stick figures that imply a story that I paint in layers and washes.
