You know my 1st love is creating keepsakes that represent the special relationships in our lives. But other images also taunt to become my muse, making themselves available for art shows and private collections. 
Work in progress: a Lion statue I admired in Paris, it finally found it's way to my easel!

Though this Statue of Liberty is closer to home, I saw both the lions and the lady while visiting France. She's always a spectacular sight, but was even moreso silhouetted in the Paris moonlight. If I'm able to paint that image worthy of sharing, you'll be the first I'll tell. 
In the meantime enjoy this version and I hope to see you at the Tower show! (Grapevine Tower Building. South Main St)
