Wheeling, MD House
While exhibiting at the Mountain State Arts and Crafts Festival, in Ripley, West Virginia, a man stopped and asked me about painting the home he grew up in. Since I had done this plenty times before, I told him what was needed to complete the painting. He asked if I would be interested in bartering instead of payment in cash. After finding out that he was a dentist, we decided that I would have some work done every year I returned to the area.
The painting had his whole family outside the home along with the bicycles they had when growing up. I ended up painting another one later of his mother’s homestead for a Christmas present. Here’s the other painting in Kenna, West Virginia.
Oh, by the way, I had my teeth cleaned and whitened, a root canal and a crown, as well a filling. Even Evelyn had her teeth cleaned and whitened. I don’t remember if she had other dental work done, but we didn’t have any insurance at the time, so that was a blessing.
