Paintings for the Family
I recently returned from a visit to North Carolina, where I attended our annual Beam family cousins reunion (held near Waynesville in the Blue Ridge Mountains) and visited my brother and other family members.  

While there and visiting cousin Evelyn, I had a great time painting alongside her in her studio and completed the painting below, "395 Oregon,"  which I presented to cousin Doris.  The painting is based on a photograph I took on one of my travels through Oregon on highway 395, which runs along the Silvis River near Seneca.  My second painting TooHolly Farm was a gift to cousin Lynda, whose Georgia farm is the site for many of our family reunions.
