"A Warm Glance," Oil on Masonite Panel, 8x10. Reference: with permission. 3 hour Alla Prima. This painting is of a dear friend, Amila, whose elegance and playful glance I hoped to capture. Her radiance, noble spirit and kindness will always remain with me.

"Fear and Hunger," Oil on Cradled Wood, 16x16. Reference: My own. A soul that I encountered who was down and out, playing his guitar on some street, looking for his fare. He caught me looking and taking his photo and the intensity of the fear and mistrust was palpable from across the street. His stare has haunted me for years and I knew I would paint him.
