Howard has been taking photos for more than 30 years. His subjects include abstracts, animals, people, nature, scenes and still lifes. This photograph depicts the brushes his mother, Adele Feigenbaum, used in creating artwork for many years and that still contain colorful traces of paint. Her work, “Balloon Vendor,” was one of the first accepted into the MDA Art Collection when it began in 1992. The brushes are wrapped in the proper fashion that artists use when they are finished working.
