My Little Sunshine

This is an original oil painting. "My little sunshine", oil and gold leaf on canvas, 36 x 36 inches, wired on back ready to hang without a frame. I am inspired by Chinese ancient paintings and Eastern European Iconography, which I have combined with my love of traditional Asian clothing to create this body of work. Amelie-An was born in Can Tho, South Vietnam in February 2008 under a very dim star. She was abandoned as an infant due to her medical problems which left her disfigured and mentally retarded. I adopted her in December of 2008 and fell in love with Amelie-An the moment I first held her in my arms. She smiled at me and I just knew we were meant to be together. The first painting I did was to celebrate the transformation of her appearance after her first surgery. I had not intended to do any more paintings but I found myself being obsessed with capturing her fleeting emotions. When I paint her it feels like a way to show a uniquely personal side of her that is often hidden by her disabilities.
