I actually pulled the color from my Florida Highwaymen paintings. I have three Florida Highwaymen paintings, these are the two that I have hanging in the guest room. They were painted by Sam Newton. If you have never heard of the Highwaymen paintings , here is a link for you to look at: http://www.floridahighwaymenpaintings.com/
The one above the bed is by Sam Newton. Sam actually asked me what I wanted him to paint and I told him either the river or the beach. He brought me this painting of the river at my job, oh I guess about about 12 years ago maybe. I can't remember. Anyway, how I met him was through an ex-daughter-in-law who owned an antique shop.
The painting below was my first Highwaymen painting. My husband bought it for me from my daughter-in-law's shop. He paid $250.00 for it back then. It's probably worth 10 times that now. It is quite large. The one hanging over the bed was the last one I bought myself directly from Sam and I paid $150.00 for it and it too is estimated to be about 10 times the original price as well.
Speaking of paint. My dear friend and yours, Jenny Matlock, sent me this sample of Valspar paint. The color is Pink Flower in honor of my little grandaughter. Thank you Miss Jenny!
And speaking of flowers, here is my first Lily this year. Well, my first Lily is actually my new grandaughter, Lily. So this flower is in honor of her.
