These are nowhere near finished but I thought I’d post some progress shots of current work…(oils on canvas)

I’m experimenting with painting different kinds of things: huge waves, water types, more pets, and a huge macro style flower (not shown).

Eventually I’ll have more variety of inventory to exhibit, and not just physically impoverished children; although those will continue to be my personal favorites. It’s no big secret that I do profoundly miss being surrounded by those children, even in the impossible humidity, bugs, dirt, illness. Problems there don’t seem to be as chronic as they are here. Why is that? Nevermind!

So while pumping these out, I’m also going through orientation with the Salvation Army I got a part time job with, super thankful. It’s good to be productive.
