Hard Work And Women


Someone once asked me why so much of my art depict women working. The answer is that I have always liked the idea that women have often been a vital link in families as shown by the work that they have performed. This work although often hard was done with pride and dignity. This is a theme that I have used from the time that I started sharing my art with the public until now and I think that it will continue as long as I can hold a brush.

I Need Your Opinion


As many of you know, a large part of my art consist of paintings on brick pavers. These paintings are decorative and many people display them on tables, bookcases and such. Some of my clients use them as doorstops. They are each signed with my name “Cherry” and the year of completion.

Well I decided to add a disclaimer to go along with the bricks. I would love to get your opinion on it. Please let me know what you think. Here goes.

Disclaimer

Disclaimer: I, Sandra Cherry Jones, painter and seller of this painted brick declare that I am not responsible for it’s unlawful use. The intended purpose is for it to be used as a decoration only. If found please do not contact me, Sandra Cherry Jones. I was not there. It was not me.

Have a nice day!
