Harvest Home

I’ve posted two illustrations that I did in the 1990’s for a magazine titled Mature Living, published by LifeWay Press. This illustration was for a story titled “Harvest Home” and was about a father and daughter in America during the late 1800’s. The story had a Thanksgiving theme . I hired models and rented costumes for this oil on canvas painting.

Buschels of Love

This is another illustration for Mature Living magazine that was painted in the 1990’s. This illustration was for a story titled “Bushels of Love”, which was about a father and daughter planting a Victory Garden during World War Two. The daughters husband was a soldier that was overseas.Models were hired and costumes rented to be used for photo reference for this painting. Painting was oil on canvas. To me this painting also has a Thanksgiving theme.
