Just a Note #3: Kevin MacPherson

 Artist:   Nita Leger Casey

This is installment #3 of Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy's weekly art feature.  My MIL gave me a bunch of greeting cards, and I decided to scan them, add a frame then and link them up to the artists websites.  Hope that they bring you a bit of joy today!

This week's featured artist is Kevin MacPherson.
The card below came in a gift set from a Veterans of Foreign Wars fundraiser:

The following were sent out from C.O.P.S. - Concerns of Police Survivors:

"Red Poppies in Flower Garden"

"Rose Garden"

"Rose Garden"

"Wild Red Poppies"

The poppy ones are lovely Kathy. I have a fondness for them since visiting the Flanders battlefield sites.

Linda Reeder said...

I get sets of cards like this all of the time, along with requests for contributions. I never thought to check on the artists who created them!

Kathy A. Johnson said...

Those are really lovely. I like the softness of the flowers in the paintings. This is such a nice series of posts.

Hart Johnson said...

Love the post cards. I think that's a great way to spread your work, too, when paintings are expensive and so spread so slowly.

What a lovely colour combination - the one on the chair.

Are you looking for info about Tyler Matthews?

The 2012 Army All-American Day Event

2012 Army All American Game Video

Photo Source: Nike "The Opening Brochure" Pages 2 and 3
During the week of July 5-9, 2011, Cary and I were privileged to attend "The Opening", watching quarterback grandson Tyler Matthews (#43 the first day, and #15 on game days) play with 150 of the best high school football players in the United States. The event was held at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. I hope that you enjoy the pictures ... some are better photos than others, but I tried to capture as many kids as I could.

There are approximately 500 photos in these slide shows. They are of the players, the fans, our family and everybody/everything that caught my eye. They are in chronological order. No names are on the pictures, even if I do know who people were.

As time permits, I will also be writing blog posts about my experience as a spectator. Since I still have a lot to learn about football and this is not a sports blog, I'll write some human interest stories as seen through my eyes. That said, Tyler Matthews, YOU ROCK!!!!
