Paintings of Children and Famous Role Models

Years ago, when I was struggling as an artist, I received a commission to paint a series of paintings depicting children and famous men and women from various cultural backgrounds that, through their talents, great ideas, inventions or deeds, inspired the youth of our country. I used my children as the models in some of the paintings. They included my son with Albert Einstein, another son with Carl Sagan, my daughter with Dr. Seuss, and my deaf daughter with Helen Keller. The owner of the company was a wonderful man that loved our country and wanted everyone to realize that part of its greatness was due the the creativity of the mixture of many cultures and backgrounds that together comprised this great nation. The paintings, which were many and some quite large, were to go on tour to museums across the country and inspire the youth of our country to achieve their dreams. Unfortunately, his company went bankrupt and all the paintings disappeared. I never heard of him again, or where the paintings ended up. So, if anyone has seen any of these paintings, please let me know.

      I lost some treasured paintings I had done when I had to leave them in a storage facility in Denver after a failed love affair forced me to move back to Vermont without them.

      I still feel the pain of both those losses nearly 35 years later.

      I hope my paintings are hanging somewhere...appreciated more than their creator was.

      Good luck on the recovery of your artwork.

      I hope these paintings can be returned one day, so sorry to hear about the loss!

      It is very inspiring and quite amazing art! One thing is for sure, that they made quite an impact on those who saw them when they did! At least we get to see them in this format now too. Thanks for sharing.

      It is true that paintings that are given away are certainly difficult to track down, epecially when they are vouched for, I think it is reasonable to expect a certain reaction from the precedings that would enable you to retain the rights to the paintings at least...IN MY EXperience , it pays to discover them!

      Love and care,

      I am an artist and hope you can locate these paintings and even have them returned to you! This is a wonderful hub and it expresses an important thing about our youth and our nation. Art is so important for communication and enjoyment of our culture!
