Dad's Art

Well I've grown up with my Dad being an amazing artist and truly appreciate all that he does. He is an amazing man apart from being an amazing artist. Those who read my sister Nicole and Jodi's blogs may well already know that Dad has an art show coming up this month at Cal Poly and it should be a great event. So at Jodi's suggestion, The Following is a digital inventory of the five lucky pieces that Amanda and I have received of my Dad's art. Enjoy!
This piece is 23"H x 30"W and hangs above our fireplace. It is done in oil medium and once hung in my grandma Hendrickson's house.
These two pieces hang side-by-side above our TV and across from the mountain scene. I believe them both to be watercolor. The first (with red flowers) hangs on the left and is 20 1/2"H x 14 1/2"W. The second hangs on the left and measures 17"H x 11"w. The second one was a wedding gift and is an older painting that had partial damage and was restored by Dad.

This piece is a wonderful little sunset/beach scene. Landscapes are some of my personal favorite types of art, and of landscapes, these types of beach scenes I just love. Just ask my wife. I am always taking pictures of sunsets or commenting about how awesome the cloud formations look that day. Maybe I'll put some sunsets I've taken on here... Anyways, this is a smaller painting that hangs in our hallway and measures 9"H x 7"W and also is one that once hung in G-ma Hendrickson's house. It too is an older painting done in oil paint.
This last painting hangs in our dining room and I couldn't really get a good picture of it because of the lighting but it has amazing color. It is mixed media of Watercolor and ink. It's 19"H x 14"W and very beautiful. This is another work from Dad's more recent college days.
