"A Rose by any other name......."

"A Rose by any other name......." 11x14 acrylic on canvas, 2009.

I painted this for my mom. As a young girl, we planted a rose garden outside my bedroom window and everyday we would check on their growth and admire the beauty of a single rose. To this day it is still by favorite flower. So this one is for you mom. I could not have asked for a better mom for God to give me. I love you!

This is my daughter Olivia and she is a huge fan of the Twilight series.  So a vampire, I made her. I added the red for a Twilight feel and she loved it.

"Ballroom Dancers"

"Ballroom Dancers" 22x28 acrylic on canvas, 2009

Well, I couldn't wait any longer. My love of dance had to be painted. I saw a similar painting of dancers painted by Ricardo Casas and decided to do my own version. I am not sure what style I would call this however it is similar to "My Self Portrait". There wasn't any challenges on this piece, I just had alot of fun doing it. If you look at the edge of the mans suit and ladies dress you will see that I made the background color seem like it was engulfing their outfits and the background is painted to have a stained glass look.
