About the Paintings: I painted Elephant, Owl, and Giraffe for Dogwood Psychology Center for Children and Families in Hillsborough, North Carolina. I did Dolphin for a second grade class at Central Elementary School and the Stegosaurus, Yvette the Frog, and Hippo for a fundraising event for the Burwell School, an historic house in Hillsborough.

Giraffe in Brooklyn was painted for Caroline, who loves to dine at Stinky. Nellie Jane’s mom loves hot air balloons, so I painted her little girl riding in one.

I love painting toys, too, because toys can be so important. I painted this for my grandson, Mazen. His turtle and ball lose their kite one day on the beach. A sad event. The ball’s name is Spikey, and it’s his fault because he didn’t hold tightly to the kite string. But Turk the Turtle, gentle soul that he is, has already forgiven Spikey and is helping him back to the beach cottage.
