# 166 Valencian Fishergirl

This is a study of a Sorolla painting, the simplicity of marks that make up the face really interested me; so I painted it! JLC

# 150 Punch Bowl Falls, Oregon

This piece I gave to my friend Neil Blender, an excellent skateboarder, and fine graphic artist. When we were in our teens we drew things constantly; in between skateboarding everywhere and everything. I am pleased to say He is once again producing art in the form of "woodblock prints". This piece is an oil 8.3/8" x 10.25" on primed cardstock. JLC

STEVE IRWIN - the crocodile hunter 1962-2006

Our world lost a Saint, "an authentic one". Steve Irwin was not just about snakes and crocs: He was a motivator, a leader, and he showed the power love! How does one measure the contribution of inspiration? Who can say they did not like this man? My heart is heavy for his surviving wife, his young children, and his childhood community he helped to build to its' present state. God said he would raise the golden age first, perhaps that is how such a freak event could have happened to someone the world grew to love and take for granted. He was indeed a Saint to both Mankind and the Animal Kingdom! JLC

# 146 Crossing Guard

September's theme will be "artist's choice month", meaning that I will paint whatever I feel that day. These last couple of months have been way too difficult to maintain this level of output; I need a break! Yet, I still wish to continue on with the 365 paintings in a year. This gal is the "crossing guard" for one of the schools. This is an oil on linen 11.00" x 16.00".Sold JLC
