For Fun

This bag was born of a flight of fancy after a visit to the material store. (The bottom part is a deep green velvet, the lining is satin.) I call them "Princes' Purses." This closing dangle was far to irresistible, I love this guy (camel).

Beggar Man

This painting was done from a photo of a beggar man in Centeral America. It is part of a series of elderly people, done in subdued and somber hues. Life is not always easy! Again, the dreaded shine is not helping with a good photo of the painting.

Random Acts

Random Acts was a commissioned painting for a church. Often, with oils or finished acrylics it is hard to get a photo that does not reflect the high gloss.
