Lee and Avrie Sauer
Written November 5, 2013
When I asked all of the artists I knew if they were interested in having a piece of their work hang in our home for the 2013 West Central Home and Garden Tour, I was pleased as could be that my very creative brother-in-law, Lee, joined in the party. Lee is one of those Renaissance people who is so creative it pours out every area of his life – drawing caricatures; painting; writing children’s books, history books, and poetry; storytelling; woodworking; renovating his home; fathering his three daughters…need I go on? You can learn more about him on his Cartoons and Caricatures website.
Lee honed in on one of those creative expressions and painted his acrylic original called Warrior. The purple hues were perfect in our home and ‘protected’ the back entrance to the hallway gallery.
His youngest daughter, Avrie, also submitted an original acrylic piece called Follow the Leader. I love the simple theme and composition, but it is the use of the color pink that really draws me in. Clearly the creativity apple did not fall far from the tree!
