My grandfather created this painting (I believe it was one he reworked). It is my all-time favorite painting of his. I remember being about nine years old or so and he asked me to “help” him as he worked on this piece. He had me inspect for dust on the painting and he asked me to give him suggestions on how to make the clouds, since I was “so good at drawing clouds”. He made me feel so special. I think the painting is one of his best and I miss seeing it hang in my grandmother’s bedroom. I hope others are able to enjoy it.Kelly King
My grandfather painted this and it is my favorite of all his work. The layers and colors are striking.Kelly
