I enjoy the colors of Siamese cats. As a young girl, I had  statues of these felines with sparkling turquoise eyes.

I am repeating Birthday here because I did intensify color since I posted it weeks ago; I also put it here so that all six are in sequence here in the blog. Thank you for viewing.

The above is another in the celebration series for a restaurant banquet space. As I am posting these, I am struggling with how the ‘true image’ keeps escaping me. The process of reproducing these larger paintings for a digital file, lacks the refinement I desire, but hopefully, you can get a good idea of the actual oil painting.

This is another of the celebration paintings for a client’s lobby space. Each one hopefully has a smile embedded.

My blog has been unattended too much lately, as I have tried to finish up a six painting project and have been away out of my studio, but hopefully, I will soon be on track once again. The above is a request of my client: six paintings of his color scheme and each one of a different celebration. Now maybe I am ready to show them all, though I am still doing some touching up.

I have been away, and now you know why. So all my oil paints are back home while I tend the morning light with the dolphins of the Outer banks of North Carolina.

I have been working on a series of celebration paintings, and one of them is “Bar Mitzvah”. The young man above is a detail of the larger painting.
