Last Wednesday night Ken and I attended the Holiday Celebration held by the Southside Art League of Indianapolis (SALI). Great food, absolutely wonderful and frequently hilarious conversation and an artist art swap. We were all supposed to bring a 5″ X 7″ unframed piece of art. Each artist selected a wrapped artwork and I was very pleased with the artwork I selected. It is titled Three Red Tulips and is an 8″ X 10″ oil painting by Stanley Austin. Stan said this is the only floral he has ever painted so I was surprised it found its way to me. I hope you enjoy his beautiful painting as much as I have. I think I may try it in watercolor – simple, soft and cropped close. Thank you, Stan!
