Cherry Preserves


Celebrating my brother's heavenly birthday today. He was the creative one in our family. He could play music by ear, and his artistic abilities knew no bounds. And he was wickedly funny. We will forever miss his sweet spirit. Happy birthday, Paul! You are so loved!

Your brother sounds like an amazing person, although I don't think he is the only lynbatcheller@yahoo.com one in the family with talent. This painting is exquisite! Probably my favorite one out of all of yours that I have seen. Bravo.

I'm so sorry that you lost your brother Darla... What a lovely tribute... I'm guessing he was a fan of a jam sandwich? Me too! Do you know, I have yet to meet a 'Paul' who isn't a lovely person... Every 'Paul' I know is so nice... And my husbands name is Paul too :0) As always your painting is superb. The lettering on the jar is amazing!

What a sweet tribute to your brother Paul. I'm sure he would be proud of your creative talent as well!
This painting reminded me of the PB&J I have of yours in my art room. I keep it displayed for inspiration!
