Still alive!

Hello, everyone, just a note to say I'm still here! Haven't been painting since my last post because I had a heart attack on April 1 (no fooling), 2020. Subsequent triple-bypass surgery combined with the universal Covid-19 quarantine kept me safe at home for a while until we gradually returned to work at the church. We're back in full force now! I've lost about 35 pounds (+/-) and I'm feeling great! I can tell such a difference from the way I felt for several years before my heart attack. I'm very thankful for my incredible wife and children, who worked as God's hands to help in my recovery. 

And the saga continues with shoulder surgery in January. That was the result of a fall that happened a couple of months after my heart surgery. I've recovered from that as well (though I may never be 100% in that area). 

Chapter 3: Earlier this year it was necessary for me to spend a great amount of time with my sister, Jo Ellen Logan, as she became very ill with liver cirrhosis and other issues. She declined quickly and passed away on April 2, 2021. It was very hard for our family and her many friends, of course. She wasn't married and had no children, so it was on us to take care of everything. A challenge, but one of the great tasks we all face in this life. 

I do plan to paint again! I wanted to wait until I really wanted to get with it, and in coming days, I think that's going to happen. In addition, my daughter borrowed my easel over a year ago, and I'm waiting for her to return it. Hint, hint.

One change in my painting life: no more commissions. I think those things may have contributed to my heart condition! : ) I really stress out over them, as I've heard many artists say. 

See you soon (?) with posts about new work. Thanks for your words of appreciation for my art and for your prayers for my health and sanity (double-up on that last one, please). 

Tim

Birthiversary

A birthiversary present for my son Joseph and daugher-in-love Caroline. Her birthday is the same day as their wedding anniversary. That's a pretty good arrangement in many ways. He only has to remember one date for both occasions. Not sure about the issue of one present for both occasions. They'll have to work that out.

She showed me a similar painting that she wanted for their newly remodeled home, so yes, this is a bit of a knock-off.

So Great a Cloud: First United Methodist Church, Bentonville

So Great a Cloud: First United Methodist Church, Bentonville Arkansas
This is a commission for my new friend, Glenn C., from England, who spent a year in Bentonville as an exchange student a while back and wanted something to help him remember our town. His host family attended FUMC, and he requested it as the subject.

I think there are some souls looking from above.

Thanks, Glenn! It was a joy to paint this one for you.

Red Sky at Night: Peddle Bell Tower, University of Mississippi

Red Sky at Night Peddle Bell Tower University of Mississippi Ole Miss Tim Logan

For my amazing nephew, Heath Lemmonds of Dallas, Texas. Heath is a University of Mississippi graduate (BA, MBA). The tower was built in his freshman year, and was near the ATO house where  he lived.

I used several reference photos for the painting, and chose to accentuate the blue evening shadows and place it against a brilliant red sky to convey the university's colors.

The Peddle Bell Tower and carillon were a gift to the university from Frank and Marge Peddle of Oxford. Heath worked at the University Club while at Ole Miss and often served the Peddles.

Dr. Lassagne's Bungalow, Eureka Springs

Dr. Lassagne's Bungalow - Eureka Springs, Arkansas

This is a commission for art friend Nanci Green, "Dr. Lassagne's Bungalow" in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Dr. Lassagne built the home around the turn of the 20th Century. He is no relation to Nanci, but her daughter's grandparents (father's side) lived in the home when she was a child, and she has fond memories of playing there almost daily.

Clearing

Clearing - by Tim Logan
After a slow year working on a single painting, I wanted to take a break and do something a little different from my usual, so this is a journey into a mind's image, a wandering forest trail that leads to a brightly lit clearing.

Where the Shade Ends Book Cover

Author Megan Meredith asked me to design the cover for her new book, Where the Shade Ends, soon to be available on Amazon!

Had a lot of fun with it, opting for colored pencil on cardboard for the art.

Hope you'll get the book - I believe it comes out in April.

Papa and Nana




Pencil portraits of my wife's parents, Glyn and Bettie Nell Hollingsworth. Glyn passed away nearly three years ago. Bettie Nell wanted a portrait of him so she could give prints to her three children and seven grandchildren for Christmas. I surprised her by doing a portrait of her as well, and gave both prints to everyone.

These are colored pencil on brown paper.

Yellow Diamond

"Yellow Diamond" is a new Eurekan architectural I delivered today to Norberta Philbrook Gallery in Eureka Springs. Leslie and I, with my sister, Jo Ellen Logan, drove over on this very beautiful near-fall day and enjoyed lunch at a wonderful little restaurant named "Fresh." Ever had Cream of Parsnip and Anise Soup? Wow, what a treat. Absolutely perfect consistency and temperature, with an exotic flavor I've never tasted before. Must have been the anise.

We dropped the painting off before lunch, promising to return afterward to visit with Ron, who mans the shop on Sundays. When we returned, the painting was in on an easel in the front window awaiting the right buyer! See photo of Jo Ellen peering in below.

The tiny, multifaceted gem of a house is a delightful find, wedged at a tight fork in the road, one tyne going upward, the other downward, a la the wonderful world of Eureka. I photographed it a few times on previous visits, always intrigued by the curious juxtaposition of the little structure with its lacy, Victorian appointments, stained glass windows, and free-form garden and yard decor. It was begging to be painted!

Old Main Morning

Old Main at the University of Arkansas is the quintessetial landmark, not only for the campus, but for all of Northwest Arkansas. It's probably one of the most recognizable buildings in the state. I hope I've done it justice. I used a few photographs from the internet to compile the angle and surroundings. I'm indebted to those photographers, and would credit them if their names were available. I wasn't in the mood to get in a helicopter and shoot it myself! Not gonna do it.

This painting was the request of my niece Elizabeth's husband, Luke Harper, who is finishing seminary at Mid America Seminary in Memphis and is on the staff of Bartlett Baptist Church in Bartlett, Tennessee. He wanted a little bit of Arkansas (they both graduated from U of A) for his office.

I've been working on it in spurts since late October (2014), and finally called it finished a couple of weeks ago. Luke reports that the painting is no longer bound for his office, but for the mantlepiece of their home. I'm honored.
