My family lost a truly wonderful man June 13th 2018, he was an artist in every sense of the word. My father James E. Thorpe was a man of great integrity, he loved to hike, fish, tie flies, camp, take pictures of his favorite places, then paint them in his spare time. After he retired he had more time to paint, which he loved. When I was a young girl my father was commissioned several times to paint mountain scenes with a lake like the one uploaded here on someone's living room wall! He has sold paintings here and there as I remember, but mostly he would give his paintings away to anyone who loved his work. My childhood home was an art gallery of my fathers paintings! Every room had his work hung on the walls, sometimes you couldn't see much of the wall behind his paintings hung there!
My mother was his biggest fan, and encouraged him and would give him her thoughts on his work when he would ask her. Their love was a great one indeed.
My brothers and I have decided to share from my art page a few of his painted works. In the near future we hope to set up his own brand.
