I came across this old photograph of my son, Jordan with a bluebird and it was the inspiration behind the painting of the angel with the bluebirds. The bluebird in the photo came down our chimney into our wood stove and Jordan rescued him. At first it was black with soot and we didn't realize it was a bluebird until Jordan very gently wiped all of the soot off of him. He sat in Jordan's hand for about 30 minutes before flying away! The other painting is how I felt earlier this week when it was about 70 degrees here in Missouri. This morning I saw that bunny on my patio, but we are expecting snow tomorrow!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
