Haitian Mother

ANITE”  -An original watercolor of a lovely Haitian woman. This piece won acceptance into the Alabama Watercolor Society Exhibition.

Anite was raising her four children by herself working for a Haitian Cottage Industry, 2nd Story Goods, when her next door neighbor was forced to leave her home, took her baby, and left her 8-year old daughter behind, alone. Anite took her in.

I was so moved by her story, I decided to do a painting of Anite, sell the *prints, and give a good portion of the money to Anite.

Framed painting is set in a beautiful wood-like frame, which sets off the color of Anite’s skin. 25″h x 26.5″ w

The Blouse

I painted “PENSIVE” for several reasons; I wanted to capture not only the mood of this young woman, but also the way in which the light played on the folds of the white blouse. This piece has won several awards, and is striking.

This painting is on Arches cold press watercolor paper. I’ve included this painting to give an example of the kind of work that I do, especially if someone would like to have a portrait done.

This is not for sale.



My oil painting teacher

This is an oil painting I did of my oil painting instructor, Carl. The model didn’t show up so Carl sat down. He’s got a marvelous face, strong nose and vivid skin colors.

This piece is 12″ w x 16″ h. It comes in a beautiful wood frame (pictured below) 21″w x 25″ h.
