" my special place"

                   39x48 acrylic and gesso on masonite, part of a series....I am working with the paint in a way for it to have a large watercolor feel from ( I feel) a vintage childrens book. the daughter of my friends michelle and stephen lee is the model, she is a very funny little girl.

"fish in my room"

                   little Nicolas in his room reading a book about fish. 24x49 acrylic and gesso on Masonite. this has to do with remembering to use our imagination and what it is like to keep our inner child alive.

" we will carry you while you search and dream"

        Working on a series of painting's of children, this is 41x48 acrylic and gesso on panel. I finally figured out how i will frame them by glueing exact pieces of wood to the back and then painting the sides or i may cap the sides with rough saw pine, very simple. I really dont like ornate depends. The children that were the models for this piece are the children of artist cathy nichols (a wonderful soul and painter)
