The upstairs bedroom in my house where my grandma, Stella Westerfield, used to paint and draw. A small easel with a blank sheet of watercolor paper stands in the middle of a card table surrounded by brushes and other art supplies. Several of her paintings are displayed on the shelves behind the table.

 


Grandma's Art Room

The house I live in used to be my grandparents' house. My mother grew up here. My grandpa, John Westerfield, died in 1999; and my grandma, Stella Westerfield, is in a nursing home suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

Grandma loved to paint and draw, though she never aspired to be a professional artist. She liked to paint flowers and pretty landscape scenes. This room is one of the upstairs bedrooms in my house. It was grandma's art room.

My son and I have lived here for a few years now, but we have left this room as it was when grandma still lived here. The paintings on the shelves are some of her work.

The frame on the wall on the right side of the photograph is a display that grandma put together of fishing flies that I made when I was in middle school and high school. Grandpa and I spent a lot of time fishing, and he taught me how to tie flies.

Grandma was very supportive of me when I went to art school, and as I struggled to make a living as a professional artist after earning my degree. I was the only professional artist in the family, and that made her proud.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
