Portrait of Aliscia "Lizzie" Ball...Trenton, NJ 2010
This is the 6th wall in the CITY OF ANGELS series. The portrait is dedicated to the memory of Alisica Ball, who's parents, Melinda and Jim Gallo, started a wish fund sponsored by ONE SIMLPE WISH www.onesimplewish.org/ in her name to foster creative projects and programing for foster, impoverished and at-risk children and their families.
I had the privlege of working with Melinda and Jim as an art instructor for "Lizzie's Art Spark" a 10 week art program where I worked with inner city middle school students and taught foundations of art. It was a honor to work with the Gallo's and ONE SIMPLE WISH and hopefully many more projects will bloosom from this program and the spirit behind it!
