My favorite art connects to memories. As a teen, I painted a red roster on a stump. It connected with my Grandmother, reminding her of all the chicken salad that she made thru the years. The rooster hung in her breakfast room for many years giving her much pleasure and became a conversation piece. As an adult I discovered acrylics, rekindling an interest in painting. I began painting some nautical scenes which connected with my family by capturing some favorite vacation memories on canvas. I always attempt to capture the realism and crispness of the scene. Hopefully the local scenes will connect to you in some way and capture a fond memory.
