Log Cabin Church

Seems like another life ago. This church was a keystone symbol in my family growth. This church is where I married my first wife, Gretchen. She was the beginning of my new family.

I painted this church for Gretchen’s parents. When she and I were getting a divorce, Gretchen told me that her mom and dad loved me and didn’t want to lose touch. In that moment, I adopted her parents. They were to be a major part of my new family.

I started painting this church for my new parents a few years later and finished it shortly after marrying Susan.

Gretchen’s mom and dad were members of Log Cabin Church and I wanted them to know that I loved them too. The painting hung at a place of honor in their home until they both passed.

I now have the painting back along with some of their other belongings. The items help keep them close.

My adopted parents filled a void. This painting does also.

Except for some unavoidable honey-dos, I pretty much goof off for a living now. My last career job was designing internet operating circuit boards along with a distinguished team of engineers, managers and support personnel. Prior to that I was an electronics technician evolving into circuit board design in the defense industry working with tactical missile systems. My first career job was a professional artist. During my younger years I worked many odd jobs beginning at age nine with a newspaper delivery route.
