I’m about halfway of my latest series about Eunice Foote. Its been a fantastic joy to make the series. Why?
John Perlin of the Physics Department of the University of California in Santa Barbara did research on Eunice Newton Foote and wrote a -yet unpublished- scientific biography on her. I read it in the Washington Post and contacted Perlin. He immediately wanted to help me with my project and this resulted in biweekly Zoom sessions in which he keeps updating me about Eunice Foote and in particular about the situation that serves as a starting point for the painting I am currently working on.
Perlin is kind enough to make time for this again and again and it is a very nice way for me to know more about her life. He not only knows everything about Eunice, but also about all kinds of related matters that took place at that time and in that place. Without him, this project would not have been possible. I am eternally grateful to him.
I’m making a small ebook of this project myself, but I hope Perlin’s manuscript about Eunice (which is way more interesting, detailed and extensive than my small ebook) will be published (internationally) soon. Because such a beauty of a story deserves a place on your bookshelf, doesn’t it?
Curious publishers can contact me (or contact John directly of course)
