“The Mackey Girls” greeting card


Four sisters dance ballet as they balance gracefully on the ridgepole of their New England Home under a crescent moon.  Their pastel dresses add to the dreamlike quality of the painting. Twenty years ago,  I painted this to express the feeling I had about the Mackey girls, a family of sisters who took me into their lives as a child.  I’ve always remembered the intense femininity of their environment and their personalities, and one evening as I drove under a twilight sky, I suddenly imagined them dancing in this scene.  Wherever they are, I wish I could say “Thank you, Mackey girls!”

Night Blooms – fine art greeting card


A magical  dancer stands on point under an old fashioned street lamp. Her face is sad, and she seems lonely, but her pose is graceful and erect.  I modeled her face on the lovely Gloria Grahame, an actress from Hollywood’s golden age who often played bad girls with a heart of gold.   In the background is a land mark of Hallowell, Maine: Brass & Friends Antiques, a place that for years lit  Water Street at night with windows like an Aladdin’s cave.
