Another challenging commission, this handsome young man; reference was a photo of a photo. The commission was bittersweet, as this young man who was bursting with health and vigor is now deceased. Hopefully, this painting gave the family a sweet memory of him

One last glance at Autumn Colors

9 x 12 watercolor - November

The season of Autumn has flown by us, the trees seemed to hold their leaves forever, and they were resplendent. One day this week I saw the wind come up and I knew, these leaves were destined to finally fall. And this is pretty much like what it looked like from my window.

As I rushed around, doing my chores today, I could not ignore the glorious colors evident everywhere I turned. This is a scene painted from right outside my front door.

Lucy Melino – New World

October 25th, 2009 2 comments

When Lucia Melino was 10 years old she and her mother and sister and brother landed on Ellis Island after a long journey from her ancestral home (a little town called Sant’Agata di Puglia ) to the United States of America. We are very fortunate that some photos were taken that show her, a pioneer in her family. It was she that learned to speak English first, she who started working before she was a teen, and she who coached her father through his American Citizenship Examinations.
