This Ole House

This is a recent commission of an old homeplace that had been neglected.  While making the decision  to tear it down, the owners were able to salvage materials to be reused in a new home that was built nearby on the property.

I was given license to imagine what the home may have looked like when a family lived there. It made me think of an old country song entitled "This Ole House" recorded by Tennessee Ernie Ford.

My client sent me a sweet note and the above photo to let me see my painting in place.  I am grateful for the opportunity they gave me to work with them and honor the past!

Mend the Heart

I stopped by the Auburn Chamber of Commerce this week to drop off  my painting, Cocksure, for Mend the Heart 2019 Tornado Relief Benefit.  The art auction will be an evening event from 6-8 PM on August 13 at the Jule Collins Smith Museum.  Hors d'ouvres will be provided by local fine dining restaurants and music by Muse.  Advance tickets can be purchased at the Auburn and Opelika Chambers, or at EAMC.ORG/MEND.  All of the proceeds will go to repairing and rebuilding recovery efforts in Lee County.
