Lavely Miller-Kershman paints but does not say.  She says that after a trauma some years ago, she does not say.  I have always painted that which I cannot say, she says.  She paints people who appear injured and capable of injuring.  This is what trauma looks like, she says.  For the past several years I have struggled with, she doesn’t say.  In the last three years I have worked through a lot of, she says, painting has refined my technical skills.  Sometimes she starts with a screen shot from TV and paints someone on paper and glues the paper to canvas.  I haven’t ever seen the show I just like the face, she says.  There is still so much to but she doesn’t say.
