Glowing Cup

This has a glow, all-over golden with a little cherry.  The cup is from my uncle's collection, Bavarian origin.

"You Are My Sunshine" is a popular song first recorded in 1939. It has been declared one of the state songs of Louisiana as a result of its association with former state governor and country music singer Jimmie Davis. The song is copyright 1940 Peer International Corporation, words and music by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell.

Davis emphasized his association with the song when running for governor, singing it at all his campaign rallies, while riding on a horse named "Sunshine". His authorized biography, You Are My Sunshine: The Jimmie Davis Story, was published in 1987.

Governor Davis served two terms from 1944-48 and again from 1960-64.  He died in 2000 after recording sacred and country songs until the early 1990's.

My painting reminds me of this song and the beautiful sunflowers following the warm Louisiana sun.
It will be on display in Baton Rouge tomorrow night through January 27 at the Louisiana State Archives.  Please join me from 5-8 PM.

Hey, Cupcake!

Only a few more days until the 42nd Annual River Road Art Show in Baton Rouge.  My painting 'Hey, Cupcake!' will be hanging.  I learned so much painting this little Airstream.  Reflective metal is always fun!  This popular Austin landmark is a real original.  Fabulous cupcakes, too.

Please join me Friday at the Louisiana State Archives on Friday from 5-8...Bring a friend!
