The village seems to welcome visitors. These houses front a waterway with a road separating them from the water. The roadway is perhaps 6 feet above the surface of the water and has a stone wall retaining it. There is a boat upside down with a fisherman perhaps telling tales of the sea to a little boy. The water has a fishing boat with its sails tied down and a man checking it out. The rightside has an anchored black hulled sailing vessel. A white stripe representing a wave between the waterline and the hull. The frame is brown, about 2 1/2 inches wide. The frame is 17 1/2 tall by 20 inches wide. The matting is about 2 inches wide, sort of a taupe with a mauve strip. About the artist- Robert Lebron's fascination for art is evident in each image he creates. With each stroke of the palette knife, Lebron paints from the depth of his imagination, to his heart and soul. At an early age, Lebron discovered his passion for art. After moving from New York City to Puerto Rico at age two, he spent his early years with his fisherman cousin who often told him the perils of the sea. Inspired by these tales, Lebron and his cousin would illustrate these stories on old paper bags. From boats to battlefields, they discovered the magic of art. He returned to New York in the 1930s and it didn't take long for Lebron's teachers to discover his abilities. He won admission to New York's prestigious high school for art and music, The Art Student's League. After serving in the United States Air Force, he attended art college and then launched his career as an artist. His original oils are an important part of public, corporate and private collections. His paintings continue to reflect his favorite theatrical and literary heroes. Many of the details in his paintings feature favorite characters from his childhood including a tiny dog (present in each painting) inspired by the comic strip, ~Dickie Dare~

Frankie has won numerous awards. During the Reagan administration, she was invited to hang one of her southern landscapes in the White House. Frankie and her husband, Tommy, began publishing her art in the late 1970's. A national distribution network was developed to make her art available throughout the United States and Canada. Frankie's paintings are done primarily in watercolors and acrylics. She also uses oils, gouache and mixed media. In 1997 Frankie and Tommy made a major move back to the countryside of Mississippi. Flower gardening, bird watching, nature walks on wooded trails and sunsets reflecting in the fishpond has given Frankie a new excitement and passion to paint. Hopefully, her art will give others joy and an appreciation for the beauty found in the simple things in life. The picture frame has brown paper backing.
