My Brother the Artist.

  As I pack things up in anticipation.. I came across these pieces of ceramics that my brother had painted a long time ago, I just thought I would post them for everyone to see.  None of them are "original paintings".. he copied them from different art books.

They may be "copy's" but he had the skill and the Artists eye to reproduce them....I think they are quite amazing Pat, and each one, is a little work of art!
