Summer is a time for taking a break from the normal routine. Summer Break was created using construction paper and other specialtypapers. While gouache paint is my favorite medium, I also enjoy creating collages. As I said, summer is a good time to take a break from what one normally does--try something different! What new adventure will you undertake this summer?

A sneak peek at one of the images that will be in my forthcoming coloring book. This ice cream parlor on Georgia Avenue is one of my favorite places; a great spot to celebrate warm weather! Details to follow.
The Black King is available in hard cover and paperback editions.
Originally written in Catalan by Ponc Pons of Minorca, Spain, The Black King, was the inspiration for this painting. King Balthazar must travel far to join the other Magi in their search for the Christ Child. Following the guiding star with his servant Said, he encounters hostile villagers and performs miracles along the way. The Black King is a timeless tale of faith and charity in the face of intolerance and suffering. In his dedication, Mr. Pons writes, "With good will and forgiveness, every day will be Christmas." The Black King was translated into English by Clyde Moneyhun and illustrated by Cynthia Farrell Johnson.
The book is available via Amazon.
