“The Tea Party” oil on canvas – 8"x 8"
Appletree Hollow Series
I spent a little bit of extra time, this past weekend, to research more of the Appletree Secret Albums and present this information from 1818. You can read about the Discovery of Appletree Hollow in 2007 in my latest Journal entry

Abigale Patch (on the right), one of Bertrum’s many sisters, is shown here with her childhood friend Flora Hamstark. This image comes as no surprise to me after finding out that Abigale became quite renown, after she was awarded a beautiful tea set for winning the very first baby contest ever recorded in Appletree. There is much more written about Abigale, that I will reveal later on, as she was involved in the underground movement in 1834.
Her friend Flora, ran off with a band of gypsies that came up the Ohio River around 1830, after falling in love with their fortune teller. She was fascinated with the profession and later formed the secret group known as the “Whiskered Wizards".

I have been a painter and sculptor for over 43 years professionally and after all this time, I still love it. It is challenging, makes me think about the world and keeps me connected to life.
My art is a mix of realism and impressionism with a bit of humor thrown in.
I am available for commission work- just ask!
