Graced by her illustration

We have a Guest Sketchbook / Register at Sunrise Gallery.

This afternoon I set up my easel in the nice light from the front window and continued to work on a painting I’m calling Grandfather’s Holland.  Having painted for a a bit and making good progress, I cleaned my brushes and put my feet up.  Soon after in walked Grace and her dad.

Grace, a young artist herself, was visiting her grandparents here in Muscatine.  Her dad told me she’d seen me painting as they walked by and had to come see what was going on.  Grace, her dad (Rob) and I had a really nice conversation about painting, God and life.  Grace even called her mom to come see!  As we wrapped up our visit, Mom (Peg) said: ‘Grace left you some art.’

In our Guest Sketchbook, Grace blessed us with a beautiful original illustration.  On one level, art is about being able to reach someone on a deep, emotional level.  

Grace, your art is beautiful and has touched my soul.  It was a pleasure sharing my art with you, and thank you so  much for gracing us with yours! 

Come see us again the next time you’re in Muscatine.
