This is a painting of me showing my daughter
Stephanie, heaven. She loves the ocean and
moving to Pensacola Beach has been a little
glimpse of God's Glory.
I did this mural at the Levin Estate in Pensacola Fl., and have sold a lot of
embellished giclee' canvas prints. I added the scripture to the prints because
the painting has a spiritual quality about it. When I finished it, it brought tears to
my eyes and I couldn't explain why. The statue is life size and is surrounded by
marble floors and a church cathedral staircase. The five foot crystal chandelier in
front of it, casts prisms of rainbow colors, which is truly glorious to behold.
I was commissioned to paint this garden scene using books with photos from
the most beautiful gardens in America. I used inspiration from each of these
and created my own version of paradise. The statue is life size and is done in oil
painted directly on the wall plaster.
I did this portrait as a gift for a friend whose daughter passed away at age
eleven. My daughter also has down syndrome, so it was very close to my
I still feel this mothers pain years later, and only hope she find comfort in know
ing her baby is well cared for. I added the scripture to the prints also
" For the city had no need for sun or stars, for the Glory of God is it's light"
