My new book, The Civil War Letters of Deakins, Perry, Wollery, Fox and Others.

I have just published a book of Civil War letters that my father, John William Perry, inherited from his grandfather, a Civil War soldier. The book contains photographs of my great grandfather in his Civil War uniform and of his wife and son. You can see and read a lot about this book on Amazon. Click here for more details.

Some Family Members are just full of themselves!

This is the latest generation of The Bottle Family, an on-going series I have been painting and featuring since January. The latest generation are not antiques, but Mason Jars, that everyone recognizes. They are filled with dark honey, pickled okra, and raspberry jelly. If you have any interest in any of the Bottle Family, you can go to my online gallery, dailypaintworks, by clicking here.

Bottle Family Child Takes a Spill

Couldn’t resist a small bottle that fell over accidentally, spilling its contents on my table. Just what a kid would do, if he were the baby in my series The Bottle Family. This series of family portraits started in January and will go on two more weeks, I think. For more information about the small oil painting, click here.

The Family Shames a Child for Staying Out on the Counter all Night!

The Bottle Family series continues with three large bottles looking gravely at a small glass. (I can remember the tongue-lashings yet!) This is number 7 of a series of paintings depicting antique bottles which, somehow, to me, resemble real people! For more information on this painting, click here.
