This painting is by Erik Pearson, one of Patrick's best friends. My mom and I were lucky enough to get one of his older works at a greatly reduced price a few years ago. We each have one and she just brought hers down to us to use for a while. I love it! It feels so summery. I hadn't been to his site for a while and was thrilled to see how much he's added. Go take a look, he is amazing!
