Candy Counter


Candy Counter.jpg

I had been visiting my daughter and her husband in Knoxville, Tennessee.  We toured the University of Tennessee where my son-in-law was a student and an employee.  The grandchildren went along with us, but weren’t particularly interested until we visited this candy store.  All of a sudden, they were fascinated.  I was so intrigued by their reaction to the candy counter that I had to put it down on canvas.

This painting means so much more to me now.  I didn’t realize that my oldest grandchild would die suddenly.  That’s Ford at the top.  He always had such an enthusiasm for life and a wonderful innocence that most kids don’t have.  We all miss him so much, but luckily the painting hangs on his parents’ wall so they can remember those great times.
