  • A MotherDaughterLove Series - looking at painting this connection.  Learning from the Madonna, the ultimate MotherLove story to our own MotherLovestories.  This is something very dear to my heart and I can't stop painting it - 2 to 3 MotherLove Pieces.
  • A SisterLove Series - I do believe there is a longing in all of us to have beautiful connection with our sisters, whether we have a blood related sister or not.  I think there is a longing in all of us for it - 2 to 3 SisterLove Pieces.
  • A FriendshipLove Series - As I'm getting older, this is something I am loving and appreciating so much in my own life.  The power of soul sister connections.  It's a beautiful thing and I want to paint it - 1 FriendshipLove painting plus a bonus ending with an large FriendshipLove piece bringing it altogether.
