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: 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.
This is an acrylic painting that was commissined by one of the graduating classes of my old school,P.S.Jones. We attended the school in the sixties. Working on this painting brought back a lot of great memories. Sometimes its good to look back at some of the things and places that influenced your life.
“My hero” is the title that my grandaughter gave to an essay assignment she was given in school. Not only was I surprised that I was chosen as the subject but I was more surprised by what she wrote. This is an excerpt from her essay.
“My grandma is my hero because I don’t know many people that can find a hobby and turn it into a career and still be a loving mother, wife, and grandmother. (Amazing!) To you this might not seem like a big deal but to me it’s special and cool because it tells me that no dream is too big or too small to come true and for that this paper is dedicated to her. I love you grandma and if you ask me you are living life the way it should be…starting with a dream.”
I have this essay hanging in my studio. I am so inspired by my granddaughter and so many others. It was a shock to everyone that knew me when I started entering art shows ans selling my work. They did’nt see that coming neither did I. I never thought about maybe I was too old to start my “art thing” or that maybe my work was not good enough. I just knew that it was what I wanted to do.
I know this statement is used over and over, but here it is again
These paintings are part of a series of small paintings that I am doing. They are 5″x7″ inches in size and are painted on canvas panels. I used my favorite medium, acrylics. They are of Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, his self-portrait, and my love birds.
