Bill Hemmerling was an untrained folk artist who painted what he loved. His paintings of "Sweet Olive" stole my heart.
Meet "Sweet Olive"...one of Bill's favorite subjects...
So if you ever find yourself in New Orleans, go here..
for one of these,
listen to a little of this...
maybe even do a bit of this..
...do a little window shopping...
...and before you go home...stop in here to say hello to Sweet Olive...you'll be glad you did!
I'd like to thank Lauren over at Rugs and Pugs for mentioning me on her blog...I didn't see a pug painting in this great gallery...but I did see this little guy...also by Bill...what a great work...see the chairs made of buttons? Thanks so much, Lauren:)
Enjoy the day,
