Oil on Linen
This is the painting I have been working on of my soldier. I, along with four friends created Art From the Heart where Georgia artists donate their time to paint the portraits of fallen Georgia soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan, free of charge for the families left behind.
This is Jamaal Addison and he was 22. He was the first soldier from Georgia to die in Iraq. I will be presenting this painting to his mother and family on March 23rd at a memorial service, the 4th anniversary of his death. I am really looking forward to it because this project has meant so much to me and I really have enjoyed painting him and getting to know him and his mother. If you would like to learn more or know of a family who might benefit from this project, please visit our website at www.AtlantaFineArtsLeague.org

Libby at 6 Months
I painted this in the Fall and thought I would share it. I have been working on a portrait of the first Georgia soldier to die in Iraq so I haven't been able to do any little sketches. Hopefully I will get back to it this coming week. Once the soldier is finished I will post him for you.
