Actually... there are more than just one! SO maybe I should say the
'featured' artist in the house.
My daughters boyfriend, Dorian, has been staying with us this summer. (Mostly to help me out while I am recovering but I suspect that it is just a good excuse for them to not be apart!)
He recently spent some time painting. Both of these were gifts that they wanted to give while going on vacation to NYC this week.

My dining room turned into a temporary art studio.
Lighthouse painting, acrylics, a birthday present for Melissa's grandmother. (not the best picture, a little angled, but you get the idea!)
A thank you gift for Melissa's Uncle Willie, my brother, for letting them crash at his apartment in NYC for the week.
This is from a photo taken on Assateague Island, MD. In it is Melissa with her Uncle Willie and a wild pony.
It was very thoughtful of him to paint for my family. The nice thing is my family will truly appreciate them, after all there are quite a few artists that have come down the line!
