Paintings of Children and Famous Role Models
Years ago, when I was struggling as an artist, I received a commission to paint a series of paintings depicting children and famous men and women from various cultural backgrounds that, through their talents, great ideas, inventions or deeds, inspired the youth of our country. I used my children as the models in some of the paintings. They included my son with Albert Einstein, another son with Carl Sagan, my daughter with Dr. Seuss, and my deaf daughter with Helen Keller. The owner of the company was a wonderful man that loved our country and wanted everyone to realize that part of its greatness was due the the creativity of the mixture of many cultures and backgrounds that together comprised this great nation. The paintings, which were many and some quite large, were to go on tour to museums across the country and inspire the youth of our country to achieve their dreams. Unfortunately, his company went bankrupt and all the paintings disappeared. I never heard of him again, or where the paintings ended up. So, if anyone has seen any of these paintings, please let me know.
