Napoleon from Animal Farm
Watercolor and Ink (www.stageone.adahost.com)
When Steve Umberger, one of the first artistic directors at the Children’s Theatre of Charlotte decided to do a musical version of George Orwell’s Animal Farm, he needed a series of slides of the realistic animal to show the children what the actor was playing. I painted these farmyard animals to be photographed and made into slides for the show. They were used in the show and, after it closed, I kept all the originals except for one that Mr Umberger owns. I especially love the pigs.
