Lew Champion’s old home place near Pine Mountain.

Lew Champion's old home place near Pine Mountain.

Lew Champion’s daughters have commissioned me to paint the family’s old home place on Salem Road. Mr. Champion doesn’t live there anymore, but he misses the home in which he grew up. Even though it isn’t possible for me to paint the memories of others, I do try to paint in such a way that will evoke an emotional response from the viewer. I like to think my house portraits are more than impersonal architectural renderings.
