  august 2009 featured art Neverland

     Yes, this piece was stimulated by all thecommotion over the recent demise of Michael Jackson. May he finallyrest in peace.
      I have never visited“Neverland”, so I dreamt up what my “Neverland” would be…A fantasyworld where everything is beautiful, everything is peaceful, everythingis easy…you know, “Neverland”. Like Michael Jackson we all search forour own “Neverland’s”, hopefully this painting will put you in adreamland for a few moments where you can relax and find beauty andpeace.
      I wish you your “Neverland” for the coming year, and hope all your wishes are realized.

“It is better to paint from memory, for thus the work will be yourown; your sensations, your individuality and your soul will triumphover that of the amateur.” – Paul Gaugin.
