Portrait of Nancy
This portrait is of Nancy, who I met at the Lancaster Public Library Lancaster, CA, USA. She was sitting next to a table with pencils configured in a very strange way. (See picture below.) I asked her if she did that and she laughed and said, “No.” I told her I thought it looked like something you’d see in a Stephen King movie.
Nancy found that amusing not only because she saw the scene in the same way before I had walked over and mentioned it, but because her husband was wandering the shelves searching for a Stephen King book. At that point, I thought I should ask her about using her for the portrait project.
Nancy came to the library often with her three children and her husband. She liked Stephen King also, but didn’t have time to read much because motherhood duties. She had seen all the movies adapted from his books. Carrie, Misery and Sleepwalkers were her favorites. As for his books, Cujo was “probably” her favorite.
In general, Nancy had always loved horror movies. She enjoyed “wondering what is going to happen next and the mystery of it all.”
Nancy was originally from Los Angeles, CA.She moved to the Antelope Valley area several years prior to the posting of this blog post. At some point, she moved back to Santa Clarita, CA, to work. Then, after her eldest daughter was two years old, the family moved back because Lancaster area was smaller and because of the numerous friends they had left behind; she also said it was a better place to raise children.
