Memory 1
Oil on board, 5"x7", NOT FOR SALE

I decided to squeeze in another posting here before Monday's official one. I painted this for our daughter Melissa's 33rd birthday, May 18th. Here she is at about the age of 10. She'll always be this age to me (any parent will know what I mean.) This is the first of a series of paintings I've been working on I call the "Memory" series. Most are based on photos I've taken long ago with cheap plastic Kodak cameras or Polaroids. The photos are very poor quality--a blessing that forces me to rely on my memories and less on the literal source image. I am loving rummaging around in my head trying to recall and make resonant those far-off visions.
