When He Returns

Saturday, December 28th, 2013

Another old painting (2007, to be precise) based on a Barb Stork photograph. That photograph of Sarah and a canine reminded me of those innumerable nineteenth century representations of wives and children hopefully waiting for their loved ones to return from the merciless sea. I’m not sure what the dog’s waiting for. Being a dog, it probably doesn’t know either.

Merry Christmas from the Potter family: Jeff, Kathy, and Sarah.

And happy holiday wishes from all the contributors at Potter’s Sketchbook.

Xenia Arts Center

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

If you happen to be in beautiful Xenia, Ohio any Thursday through Saturday between noon and 6:00 p.m., amble over to the Xenia Area Community Theater located at 45 E Second Street. As you see, they kindly put one of my paintings in their window for the Christmas season. They have a lot of great pieces ridiculously under-priced by some wonderfully talented local artists, so you’ll be glad you stopped by. For more information, visit their website at
