When did you create these two pieces?

“Lean On Me” was created first in 1999 and then “My Comfort” was created in 2001.

These two images seem to convey such a strong spiritual message. Was there anything that you were going through personally at the time?

I wasn’t really going through anything at the time but I did have a strong desire and need to be more spiritually expressive with my art.

Have you ever considered creating another member of the series?

I’ve thought about this and I actually plan to create another member of the series featuring a man and a woman together. I just haven’t had the opportunity to paint it yet.

Are the originals of these two pieces still available?

Yes, both originals are still available and are currently in my art gallery in Atlanta, GA.

Where can the originals be viewed or purchased?
