A tribute to 'my personal nurse' who has taken
care of me as l go through chemotherapy. Kathy
Rooney is attentive, caring and diligent as she her
passion. When l first arrived at the clinic l was
amazed at how she and the other nurses were taking
care of so many patients with such professional care.
I know l'm getting the best care and thankful that God
has put me with the best of the best.

November 9,1956 - March 6, 2013 - Tribute to my dear
good friend Lebron Boyd. I was the last person who
spoke with him prior to his passing, which was sudden
and unexpected. He was a man of God, a man of integrity,
great dignity and great passion for photography which,
he was so gifted at. He was able to capture heart and soul
of his subjects through the lens of a camera. He was great
husband and father to his wife Sharon Grier. I miss him
allot but, know he is with the Lord.

I’ve been blessed have a few great friends in my life.
That friend who is always there for you. In times of
frustrations, counsel and support. Helping you through
the thick and thin’s of life. That credit goes to Nadine Nakanishi. Early in my career, as art director for
KHJ9 network, she took a chance hiring me as a freelance artist. It was the beginning of a long time-die
hard-good friendship ever since. We attended the same high school and were both members of Creative Source Art Studios in Hollywood, CA. This portrait is an aatempt to
capture her infectious childhood smile she seems to easily
wear so well.
Tribute to Victor Prado. A man I’ve come to respect
and admire greatly. His nativeNheritage can be seen
clearly in his profile portrait. His passion for automobiles
and their repair can be seen in the work he loves so much.
A man who takes great pride in his work. Always honest
with his clients never taking advantage but, instead putting
the clients needs first. Something rarely found in most
businesses today. It took some convincing Victor to allow
me paint his portrait. Something I hope to be able to do

My younger brother Fred Lewis. A sharp dresser and as you
can see in this painting, which also reflects the time period of
the late seventies or mid eighties. Growing up I remember his
incredible musical talents even as a child. Watching him create
‘soulful rhythms’ beating on coffee tin cans even before he was
able to purchase his first set of bongos. It was evident he would
make his mark in the music field as a percussionist with Lakeside
creating hits like ‘All the Way Live, ‘Pull My String’ to name a few.

Using a warm palette to create ‘Oracle Jane Doe’ as she’s
known to many in the musical circuit. Blessed with the gift of song. She’s beautiful, strong, multi-talented and my niece Kawanna Lewis. First born and the daughter of my brother Fred Lewis, she’s a chip off the old block, both sharing their love and passion for music.
