carnival flowers....

"Carnival Flowers"

This is probably going to be a short post.  As many of you know, I had a death in my family.  I visited Savannah last weekend to attend my cousin Mike's wedding on Saturday.  On Sunday, there were very bad storms and he was killed in a car accident.  We were very close.  The two of us were both adopted, so we felt a special bond. 
 1964- me and my cousin Mike, with his Dad.

He lived with my Grandmother, and I spent every day of summer vacation and holidays with him.  I was shocked and devastated...but I cannot imagine how it is for his new bride.
  Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers.

I finished this painting  and video before I went to Savannah, and didn't have time to post it.  It was inspired by the swing ride at the carnival.  I went to Disney World for the 1st time at age 7 with my cousin, Mike.  The carnival ride in the video reminds me of that fun time.  I hope you enjoy it.

I will be back soon with new work.  I'm finding the most comfort in being quiet and painting,  I've had a lot of new inspiration, despite the circumstances.  And I can't wait to share it with you.
