"I'll Be There For You...A Tribute to Sisters"


"I'll Be There For You...A Tribute to Sisters," Watercolor. 18x24. Arches Cold Press 140 lb. Reference: My Own.
The Story behind the painting:
These two young women inspire me on so many levels. They are strong, determined and have been through the maze of life and then some, only to persevere triumphantly. To say they are beautiful, is the understatement of the century. They came to an art reception where my painting was being exhibited two months ago with a friend of mine.  EVERY artist in attendance who saw them asked who they were and if they modeled! I was fortunate enough to be able to contact them and meet them again and get acquainted with them a bit. I was taken with them - their story, their artistic passion and inner beauty.

I think they will be muses for me for a long time. Thanks for looking.
