"Art touches the soul...art is communication...it reaches out from the canvas and passes through the eyes of the viewer right into his heart where it can leave an imprint of beauty that can make the spirit sing."

Paintings done for Christmas Presents


Well, these probably aren't the best photos, but they are what I could get this evening as the sun went down...using natural light coming in the window...

The first is called "Generations III" and is a present to my wonderful daughter-in-law, Shannon.  She is the biggest fan of my "Women Gathering" series!!   This painting represents Shannon and the women in her life...her Mom, Grandmother, sister, etc. plus two little nieces, Saoirse and Kinsey...

I still haven't decided whether I should paint on it more or not...if I do, I will talk it over with Shannon first to make sure it is OK with her...or I won't do it...


 
The next painting is actually a triptych...three paintings forming one arrangement...actually, they could be hung individually also...I call the arrangement, "Calypso"...happy, tropical colors!
 



 
This set of paintings is a gift to my daughter, Kerry, and her husband, Curtis...
 
I live a charmed life and I know it!!  ...such fun!!  My family thinks I am the greatest artist that ever lived!!!...and I just let them think it!! 
Think I will take some photos tomorrow of my "abstract kitty", Baby...
 
until then!
