Okey's Promise Auction – In the Eyes of a Child

I do not often draw or paint images of people. It really is not my thing. I prefer to leave that genre to people who really have a passion for drawing and painting the human figure.

I do, however, create images of children on occasion. I was a therapist for children for 20 years, and they have inspired the simple, colorful nature of my artwork.

Children have been very present in my mind lately as the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting has weighed heavily on me. I have written about that on my Okey’s Promise blog, and today’s drawing is a takeoff from an image I created for this particular article about the power of images.

I am posting art auctions throughout January to aid the fund raising campaign for my latest Okey’s Promise project. You can follow the auctions here or on the Okey’s Promise Facebook page. Watch for art auctions all month long!

Some artworks will be new, and some will be works from previous auctions that did not sell for one reason or another. Here are the details for today’s artworks:
