All these pieces were created by artists of varying ability.They all bring me the same amount of joy. The pencil sketch (about the size of a postcard) of T.E.Lawrence was drawn by Augustus John in just two minutes-clearly capturing the essence of "Lawrence of Arabia". The second work is by a Vancouver artist-it captures the quality of light I associate with the South of France. This oil came from the stairwell of the Kent farm house. I saw it almost every day for 4 years. When the show wrapped-I bought the canvas. Now hanging in our front stairwell.
The third image is a post card of Virginia Woolf (the original small platinum print is housed in the National Portrait Gallery, London). The small water colours are by the person whom taught Ms. Woolf how to water colour.
The carved bluejay is by a local folk artist that believes that art should be accessible to the masses-true folk art. Thank you for looking.
