 Painting my best friend Sandy, as a mermaid was so much fun!  I was thrilled when her daughter, Michelle commissioned a painting of her mom as a mermaid.....those of you who know me, know how I feel about mermaids! Well, to paint my bff as a mermaid? It doesn't get better than that! Quickly I started looking at all the photos of Sandy to find just the right one! Bingo! This photograph was taken at a little Wine Cafe in Hope Mills that we enjoy visiting from time to time.
I placed Sandy in the water like she was casually reading a book and soaking up some waves, look closely at the title of the book.  Sandy has a way of telling or describing information prefaced with "this is the deal", so of course, I titled the painting "The Deal".
Happy Birthday to my bff Sandy, from your daughter, Michelle.......we both love you!

Alex's wedding gift to Danielle was a painted album commissioned from me titled "Our Story " which expressed 5 significant events in their lives.  A sentimental gift is what Alex wanted to give to his new wife. I wanted to share a few of the pages in the album that express this special love between the two newlyweds from when they first met at the Sandwich Shop at White Lake to when Alex got down on his knees and proposed to Danielle in Central Park, NYC
.  Congratulations and Best Wishes to Alex and Danielle as they begin their life together.
