24″ x 20″ — Oil/Canvas — 2009

This is another composition with the early 1960s children’s book, It’s Story Time. I had fun with with a triangular composition which I think works well with the overall simplicity of the shapes in my work.

My four-year-old daughter was flipping through book and was fascinated by the illustrations. She was inspired and did a little sketch of a bird and left it as a gift for me.

    Your work is beautiful and inspiring! I always enjoy the clean whites and subtle gradations in the shelves and background. Your application makes the paint look very smooth and creamy. I really appreciate how the images are always very realistic yet the quality of the paint is not denied. Again beautiful work! 🙂

    Thank you, Victoria.

    You know, one of the main drives to continue painting is to find the right balance in every aspect of the work. Composition, application of the paint between loose and tight.
