Flora and Fauna

My friend and I are having a duet show at the Memorial Art Gallery at The Friendly Home at 3156 East Avenue, “Flora and Fauna,” her flowers and my animals, until June 30th, 2014.  Follow the link above to see my friend’s artwork.  Here’s what’s showing of mine:

I was moved by a recent NY Times Modern Love story, “My Touchstone and a Heart of Gold,” to paint a turtle.  I hadn’t realized people became so attached to their turtles, but after reading the story, I get it.  I had a photo of one of the residents of nearby Lamberton Conservatory, so here we are.
