I'm very proud of my son.....
A creative soul, his 18-year-old self is in his second year of living across the country far away from us, studying classical ballet at a renown studio in a big city on the coast, in hopes of making professional dance his career of choice.

A wonderful dancer and excellent student, he is working very hard out there.
In addition to ballet he also loves music, in particular the Techno and Trance genres, and enjoys tinkering with and composing his own techno/trance inspired songs.
And so it was with special interest and motivation that, when my son requested a painting from me of a 'Blue Phoenix', as something he might use as an icon/logo/emblem as part of his DJ persona and online musical presence, I was only too happy to oblige. It took a little time to design, execute and complete, but I love doing art for family and friends so it was a particularly fun and enjoyable challenge for me. As such I managed to finish it up in time to give to him at the Holidays when he was home briefly (too brief!) for a visit....:
