Seagull Cinderella, 15" tall, wood paint by Donna Dodson Photo Credit: Cliff Pfeiffer
Seagull Cinderella is as common as the birds we see at the beach. Yet she is uncommon, like Marilla in Anne of Green Gables, corseted and bound by the sweet virtues of her character.

I have work in the

Holiday Show at

Rhino Man, 16" tall, wood, enamel 2010 by Donna Dodson
Homage to H. C. Westerman, and his impenetrable nature. His work is enigmatic. His art is outside the canon and in it. In this piece, the juxtaposition of metallic paint and natural wood grain seemed like an anomaly: like H.C. Westerman himself.
