Painting: The Little Gatekeeper

Acrylic, 16 x 16 canvas, 2008.

I like to think that this little guy protects my dreams when I'm not asleep to be near them.

Painting: I Will Protect You

Acrylic, 28 x 22 canvas, 2008.

The lighting wasn't great when we photographed this painting. It is also larger than my typical paintings. Like the others, this sat as an unfinished underpainting for months before I started adding the foreground elements, and the girl with the cat sprang out to complete the image. This painting depicts the most closely how I've been feeling lately towards my family. Happy happy!
