|The Miracle Car 2015-2016 |
(Reflections of My Childhood Series)
The toy car the boy holds in his left hand ignites his memory of a genuine supernatural intervention. Because he is a child it wasn't long before, that he was in the back seat with his two younger siblings in a 1952 Buick Fastback.
The car is depicted in the painting as if the intervening light has interceded with such a force that the very physical integrity of the car has been altered. The golden light that envelopes the boy reminds him that contrary to his inclination to perceive himself as insignificant, the memory reassures him that God intervenes on behalf of the weak.

|Leilani Muir O'Malley 1944-2016|
Because I am aging myself, it may not be too long before I will join her. But until then, in honour of the many wonderful memories Leilani and I have shared and in honour of the God we worship, I hope to be more productive in creating my works of art than I have ever been.

Epiphany from Heaven
Often the demands and constraints within the structured educational environment causes undue pressure to students with cognitive disabilities. The grey void surrounding this teen represents the feeling that she is currently experiencing: that she is floundering. The tablet which is usually a source of escapism suddenly becomes the source of inspiration; symbolized by the wing that cradles her and the thin strand of light that connects the wing to to the tablet. Sometimes learning comes through personal discovery as apposed to the dictates of a structured curriculum.
