Core Values

janefirst is CUSTOM DESIGN by Jane Rubin. This is NOT a template.
This is NOT someone else's framework. I also do NOT sketch, wireframe
or research, before I design, because, I do not have to. I can see it,
and do it, without any of that stuff. As the focus of this site is
my paintings and drawings, I am not including a lot of motion or
interactive bells and whistles. The Design is in progress.

All Paintings and Drawings on this site will be updated
with high resolution images.

CENTER PAINTING    Self-Portrait   96" x 96"

I do NOT play the drums. I play the piano.

This painting represents me overcoming abuse, and
anti-semitism, in my childhood.

At the bottom of the painting, upside down, there is an image of Snow White's evil stepmother. There was violent abuse from women and girls in my childhood.

On the other hand, I received a lot of love and nurturing from Men, from my Grandfather and Father. They were both Mr. Moms to me. They were also strong, confident Men, ahead of their time.

In the real world, both men and women can hurt children, and each other. It is wrong and dangerous to pretend that only Men do bad things. All forms of abuse, and bigotry, must be stopped.
