This was a fun little painting to create. It’s inspiration comes from one of my first mentors, a wonderful little elderly lady named Margaret Brown. I met Margaret when I took a part-time job during my college years at a local liquor distributor. The job was painting signs for their displays with prices and illustrations. This was before they moved to computer graphics. Margaret was retiring and I was training as her replacement. While working with her, I discovered that she was a talented painter and active in the local artist community. Her favorite subject was tree frogs. (I tried to find a photo of one of her paintings without success.). I learned a lot from her before her retirement and was even invited over to see her studio. Although Margaret passed away many years ago, I still remember her fondly. This little frog painting is a tip of the hat to Margaret.
