This is a sketch I used for nine 10x5.5 canvas panels that were used in the 90's at Goodrich Middle School in their theater department.
I am planning to submit the sketch to a competition for making banners to hang from a grain elevator in Lincoln, NE
When I painted this image the first time I was thinking about life and the seeming solitude one lives in A butterfly appeared unexpectedly in the first one, bringing delight and symbolizing constant companionship with our heavenly Father. This painting continues joyfully in that direction, though the title "House Divided" brings a new dimension to joyful solitude.
My first grandchild, Weston, inspired a painting that turned me to this new direction of paintings. This painting is the third oil painting done with him in mind. There are two acrylic paintings with him as the main character. One of them sold at it's first showing.
