Christ Child, Mary, Christmas, Nativity, Manger

20 x 20 pastel on mi tiente paper  $2000.00

My friend Jeannie and her beautiful baby posed for this square 20 x 20 painting. I depicted her as Mary with her son Jesus in a manger. This nativity scene is available in the framed and matted original or as a print. I used tinted mi tiente paper and pastels for the soft look I was after.

"The Angel and the Dove"

10" x 12"  watercolor and ink on 140 lb watercolor paper    SOLD

They have become fast friends, gliding the colorful skies, finding ways to help those who need their help.  Sometimes the angel whispers to the dove in spiritual language that only those with wings can understand.  The dove coos softly.

"The Sharecropper's Wife"

12" x 21"  watercolor matted and framed   $450.00

Her back is aching. She has bent over the crops in the hot sun all day long and still has to catch the chicken for dinner.  She is young and hardy and beautiful underneath her headscarf.  Her children help when they can, but she wants to make certain they get an education first.  Her vegetable garden is filled with lots of greens, beans, root veggies, potatoes and herbs.

He has been working in the fields all day.  He is tired and ready for dinner.  After dinner he will feed the pigs and cattle and milk the cows.  He is a proud man, making his own wages, selling and bartering to make ends meet and to send his children to school to get the best education they can.   by God.
