We are entering the Christmas season. This is a time for families. Here is a 16" x 20" acrylic painting of my grandparent's barn in Keystone, Oklahoma. Thye cam eout to Oklahoma before it was a state. My grandfather was a country doctor but never earned much money as people had little cash to pay him. A lot of his servcies were done on a barter basis. My grandmother was a teacher but then ran the family farm to support the family. It was mostly orchards and dairy cows. They drilled five dry wells on the land but many of his neighbors struck it rich with oil.
I now an artist with the Arts Council of New Orleans and participate in their monthy art market. These markets occur generally on the last Saturday at Palmer Park in New Orleans, at the corner of S. Carrolton and S. Claiborne. Sunday December 22 is the next market that I will have a booth and offer paintings for sale.
