Donna was her name

By, Sandra Monday

At 16 with child

By my father, David just back

From Vietnam only 22 himself

Holy Pas De Duex : My New Series

As you may have noticed, I have begun a new series of paintings dedicated to divine pairs of male and female dancers. The reasoning for this, I found that through love all things are possible, and to me since God is Love, I believe His love brought all being into existence, that life itself is a romantic divine dance. The reason for the pas de deux? Well for me the male female counterparts represent procreation bringing life into being.  It is based on my own personal experience of…
