Here are a couple more little paintings. The first one, "Mermaid Encounter", features a little girl who got hit by wave. In her effort to grasp on to something to get her head above the surf, she made a chance encounter with a mermaid!
The second one, "Lizard Earrings", features a girl with real live lizards chomping on her earlobes for earrings. Did you know that people actually do this? Google it, it's true! Ouch, I think it would hurt! Tell me if you have ever worn real lizards~
I live in the St. Louis area and I am taking my big ol' kids to the St. Louis Gateway Arch tomorrow. Believe it or not 2 of my kids have never been up to the top! I can't say that I am excited to get in that tiny little capsule and travel up the leg of that very tall landmark. But from what I remember, the view at the top is worth it!
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.
