The Spirit of Christmas

Elle met Santa when she had just turned one year old; it was love at first sight! He visits her every year and brings her a gift, she makes him cookies. It was a match made in heaven.


Tim posed for two hours while I painting his portrait. What a good sport.


Heather’s Birthday.

Every year on her birthday in August, Heather goes to the beach where she always finds a sand dollar; a gift from the sea.


I worked on this still life for several days. It features an illuminated lamp, a seltzer bottle, an old beam, a tea cup, a gnarled soccer ball, a military fuel can, fabrics and assorted flotsam.
