  4. Very impressive work! Reminds me a of Andrew Wyeth of Chadds Ford, PA. I hope your brother is still painting?
    Did he make Art a career, or was it just a hobby? Either way the quality is excellent.

    Winston Churchill was a very fine painter also. I spent time in his studio when I visited Chartwell back in 1977, and would have stayed all day looking at his paintings, if he'd let me.

    Your brother's work has a similar degree of integrity. I really loved the Mason jars.

    1. I used to do some Admiral but was never that good. I was never taught tho either. Maybe in retirement.

  6. I was locked out and now I'm back in...sorry for the 'test'.

    This artwork is so nice, and I particularly love the Mason Jars, too, as did FT. There's something wonderful about painting the 'commonplace' with a style that makes it different yet the same. I wish your brother could still be with us and see your, and our, appreciation.
    Nice to remember him in this lovely way.

    1. Thank you Z. I agree. I like a lot various forms including surrealistic but painting life like Remington did is really impressive. Someone I met had one on his wall - three horses with riders charging through a shallow stream, the water flying around and all. Wow...

  7. Kid,
    Your brother was a quite the talented artist!

    Do you have these paintings framed and hanging on your walls? These are deserving of such attention, IMO.

    PS: Who is the man in the portrait?

    1. AOW, Thanks so much.

      They are framed, and each of his to daughters has one.

      The man is just a creation as far as I know.

      You Might remember the Budweiser commercial images of female elves dressed in Christmas/Santa garb included with images of Budweiser around the holidays. ? Early 70's. He created those and sent them to Budweiser who just used them and didn't even reply to him.

      Thanks Again.
