Artist of the Month for August 2017 - Loni Lou LaQuill.

This past year I spent time sorting through old photos and slides, which brought back many memories of my growing up in North Dakota. Realizing the landmarks I had enjoyed were disappearing, I knew I wanted to paint them. Sunday family gatherings with relatives for food and games were filled with laughter, and sometimes being taken to the old woodshed for discipline for misbehaving. The clanking of the train pulling in at the railroad depot, the many sounds of the grain elevators as the farmers delivered their crops, the whirring blades of the windmill using the hand pump to draw water up from the water tank for the farm animals, to water the gardens, and filling the water pails with fresh water for the house. Many of the smaller old farm homesteads are left standing empty as new generations need to find a career where they can make a living. Will the next generation even know what I am referring to? I do hope these paintings will bring back pleasant memories of times gone by.
