STUDENT'S PAINTINGS - JILL SLOTOROFF

I was honored at a surprise birthday party on August 8, 2011; more than twenty former and current students brought paintings that they had completed during some of our classes.  These paintings were on display around the room.

Jill Slotoroff presented an unfinished portrait of me.

The portrait was never finished since her daughter had become pregnant, and Jill’s responsibility was to her daughter.  Many years have passed; her daughter, Melissa, now has three children, and after my surprise party, Jill decided to come back to class. 

Jill came back to my studio and finished the portrait shown here.


         I AM NOT QUITE SURE WHEN JILL CREATED THE PAINTING BELOW:
                               BUT IT IS A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN SCENE


                Many years ago Jill had a dream, which has been haunting her mind;
                She has finally been able to put a semblance of that dream on canvas.
                               When you love flowers it shows in Jill's Floral paintings
