Art: Glynese and Carramae by Artist Muriel Areno
I found sisters Glynese, the redhead, and Carramae, the pregnant 15-year-old, in Flannery O'Connor's Good Country People. The story is not about them, and they are just sketched in, two forgettable girls in a dismal landscape. In my painting, I chose to keep them faceless, as they are in the story. There's something ominous about O'Connor's stories, which I conveyed in the sky. The colors are colors of the fifties, when this was written. In O'Connor's world, they are alone, almost abandoned.
