"Walk With Me"

8 x 10"
oil on masonite

Today is a special day - my mom's birthday and the day my dad passed away. I like to think they're walking hand in hand on some beach in paradise. They were a great example of how to love - they were kind to each other.... best of friends. They were an enduring love through thick and thin. I miss 'em.This new painting will be auctioned with 100% of the winning bid donated to the Sisters of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Home, here in Atlanta. They took great care of my dad and I'm forever grateful. In addition, I will personally match the amount - so please, consider a bid - and I thank you.

I don't know how you nail it everytime. Your paintings are so beautifully loose yet I can see every detail in my minds eye. I'm sure your parents are so proud.

Just popped in to see what you've been up to.
Your beach subjects are lovely and so candid.

The full moon this time around had an amazing calming effect on me as well. It was a good time to relax and reflect.
Keep up the wonderful painting, but try not to work too hard. Easy to say...I know.

This is a very tender and poignant piece, even without knowing the personal story. Beautiful job on the reflections in the wet sand, too.

Before I read the description of this
painting I was drawn to it. I'm
glad your parents were happy. It
shows in this lovely painting, and
in your work.
