“The Great American Road Trip” series features art pieces colorfully depicting vintage cars and trucks “traveling” all over the United States. The inspiration behind the series is my experience as a mother of young children, feeling trapped at times, lacking the freedom to go where-ever, when-ever! I chose to feature vehicles because the car is a symbol of total freedom. You can jump in and go anywhere at a moment’s notice.
Lighthouse, Playhouse features a scene from Connecticut which I read about in an article online. The story was about a family with young kids and the father had commissioned a contractor to turn the interior of this lighthouse into a playhouse for his children. I would have loved that when I was a kid! In fact, I would love it now!
