Josephine and Eveyln
This is painting of Harold's mom and sister that died as a baby.   I painted this off an old black and white photo, probably 1947 or 1948.  I thought her hairstyle was very interesting.

Beach Bums
I just had Harold take a photo of my painting, the colors look so much better.  This is Noa and Zoe sunbathing on Pangimotu Island. This painting will always remind me of our difficult, but rewarding trip to Tonga to get our beautiful babies.
