This photo is 12 years old, long before I had a digital camera, and it is still one of my very favorites. Jordan (left) and his cousin, Rory found the most perfect starfish on the beach, (with a little sneaky help from Dad and Souvenir City). They worked all afternoon, becoming brown as nuts, building the grandest sand castle for their beautiful starfish to sit atop! It is a memory I will always cherish. This painting is inspired by that wonderful day in 1997.
I will list this painting tonight on eBay. You can find the link at the top of the page.
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.
