working on my next solo show

i have been exploring art themes that center around the strength and innocence of children.  maybe because being an adult, with kids, and a job, and art career … is often overwhelming.  i remember what it was like to be a kids.  all the dreams i had, and still have.  many of those dreams have come through.  here are some of the first images from my latest series “childhood dreams and conquered fears.”

will be mainly working in oil on these, so they take longer to create and dry.  hoping to create 10 more paintings, and have my next solo show in August 2016. stay tuned!
