Today, I'm presenting two paintings that I have copied from artists that I can not find represented on the internet. Isn't that strange?
This first one is after an artist named Christian Barat who was born in 1939. The name of the piece is Ramatulle and I painted it in 2006 on a 16x20 canvas.
Yesterday, we went to Church and following had a luncheon presented by the men of the church. I'll bet most of them had their wives prepare the meal! Later in the afternoon, we were invited to a friend of Beverlys, and mine, Barbara Phillips and her husband Marian and their visiting daughter Kathy from New Orleans. Barbara is an artist and last year when I was recovering from my broken ankle, she came to me, gave me some acrylic supplies, I had left mine at home, and gave me a lesson. This year, I wanted to give her one of my paintings. I was delighted she found two she wanted. I expected her to take a small one as a token and when she took two and one was a 10x20, I was delighted. Then, as a surprise to me, she gave me my choice of three of her paintings. One was done in a folk art style which she had done many of. That is what I choose and then it turned out to be her as a baby!
