After the birth of my son Joseph, I wanted to make something special for him that he can look at every day, enjoy, puzzle over, and learn from.
"Joseph's Alphabet" --a series of 26 acrylic paintings on canvas-- was created during the first year of his life. I hung the alphabet on my son's wall so that when he wakes ever morning the alphabet surrounds him. As he awakens into consciousness and into language, these images will be a part of his discovery of the wonder of the world around him.
These paintings have been reproduced as a limited edition portfolio. "Joseph's Alphabet" is available for purchase upon request.
