Addie (and her dear squeaky elephant toy friend, Ellie) are nestled in a very particular spot in my heart and always will be. Whenever I think of her or look at her painted image, I feel a tight little knot inside of me, the size of a rose bud, exuding a concentrated feeling of bright, pure love. Although this is a strange description of love...I must admit, it is a truly beautiful feeling. It tugs at me and infuses me all at the same time.

I love Addie. Her and her mama hold a very deep place in my heart. Addie was part of my recent exhibition, BULLDOG. She's touched my life in more profound ways than she could ever know. And I know I'm not the only one.

These paintings were not created in just one day, rather over the course of many days, weeks and months. I've been so busy painting that I haven't had a chance to share the finished work until now! I'm excited to finally be sharing these images.
