Expecting the Miracle




Expecting the Miracle, 30 x 24 oil on panel, framed by the artist

Expecting the Miracle captures the moment of ecstasy, when a child realizes he is part of something larger, something magnificent. He experiences himself as the central character AND realizes he is but a small, almost insignificant part of the large pageantry of life. My son, Danny, was the model for this little boy. Danny once wrote, “I love everything and everybody.” I think this painting captures the essence of those words.

Here’s another recent painting, painted from life of Danny, my son, captured on FB live. It was a delightful experience, being serenaded on the violin by my son, while I painted.

You can watch Danny perform the “Praeludium and Allegro” by Fritz Kreisler on FB.
