WVA Family Reunion
I painted this one to show a family reunion in West Virginia. This particular one is at Uncle Rodgers house in Dawson WVA and is held the first Saturday in August each year. The house is in the mountains on a beautiful knoll. As I painted the various parts of the picture including us coming over the mountains in our RV, the family Blue Grass band in the garage, and the children playing, I began to realize there were more in attendance than those physically there. I painted them in the clouds and the mountains. You'll have to look carefully to see them though just as you do in a real sky with real clouds.
