Thank You for My Wings

This is the title of my body of work for the 2009 Thesis show.  They are all 2' by 2' and are created in oil.  They are snapshot-style paintings of my past with my family.  It is a celebration of who I have become through the love of my family!

Daddy and Me

I like this image because it shows a moment when my dad set everything aside just to hold me.  I was only a month or so old.

Mommy and Me

This is the "oldest" version of myself in the thesis show so far.

Robert and Me

I am the youngest in my family.  My brother is only a year-and-a-half older than me, so we grew up very close.  As a baby, he took care of me by trying to feed me.  This painting shows the friendship we have always had.

Erika and Me

And here is my golden-haired big sis!  Some one commented that my eyes are as big as the Cabbage Patch doll's.  It's funny because it's true!
