The Collection of the Willington Public Library

A generous town resident donated money for the brand new Willington Public Library to purchase artwork to adorn its walls. The librarians are art lovers and had a wonderful time visiting artists' studios to select artwork. They found two in my studio that they loved: the bench under the willow and the birch tree - both quiet paintings very appropriate for a library.

Later, they commissioned two more paintings - a Coral Reef canvas painting for the children's section and an acrylic on canvas of Poppies for over the main desk. They tell me they enjoy all the comments they get on the art collections particularly the poppies painting that is so prominent as soon as people walk in the front door. You can see the small plaques under most of the paintings which give credit to the donor.
The town residents and local artists are thankful to the donor, and we thank the librarians for sharing their collection!
