The Stackhouses

My paintings usually tell a story, mark a time in history, and usually the past. This is my paternal grandmother and Uncle Andy of Marion, South Carolina. I have just discovered a multitude of photos of my family taken in the 1920's, which are immensely paintable. As I am studying them to capture the story while painting them, I am learning more about my family which was mostly unknown to me. What could be better? Oh and the lights, my grandfather was a splendid photographer, my grandmother a willing model. Two beautiful boys... Sound familiar? SOLD
