With Child

I was contacted last month by a sweet friend I hadn't seen in over thirty years. He asked me to paint a portrait of his lovely wife as a birthday gift. I've been keeping the portrait under wraps blog-wise so I wouldn't spoil the surprise. Now that she's officially begun her next trip around the sun I'm sharing the painting. She's beautiful...I hope I did her justice.

And I am painting other things today, just not as much as I'd like. I've been getting my classroom ready so I can do a training for new special education teachers. Ninety percent of my creativity has been happily going in that direction. I'll post what the remaining ten percent has been up to tomorrow.

I'm running a big sale on my paintings through the end of August. Almost everything in my gallery is 60% off. I'm only keeping my most current work (paintings on page 1) at the listed prices. If there's something you'd like, please let me know by message or comment so I can manually adjust the price. Thanks!!!


  1. How can they both not be thrilled with this beautiful painting?! What a precious memory for them, and for baby!
