I need Space 2
watercolor on paper
16 x 11 in.

My art work reflects my childhood growing up in rural Mississippi, with wildness surrounding and animals. The nights were dark; we depended on oil lamps, fire place and the moon.

I was told ghost stories before bed time. I can hear the wind outside howling, I can see shadows and noises larking in the house. This experience helps my imagination and creative abilities in art.
