Richard Thompson at Deep Creek Lake - previously unseen art



A local illustrator, caricaturist and courtroom artist Dana Verkouteren just shared this painting with me, noting it "was one Richard painted after he, Bono [Mitchell], and Linda Lunsford were up at Deep Creek lake with me, for a  late autumn weekend. It was an incredible thank you gift that I treasure! Honestly, even looking at it up close, I’ve no idea how he created that image. 



This was back in the early 1990s. This is a watercolor I did from a photo after the weekend from a hike. That’s Linda in front with her camera, my brother Steve is in the red shirt, and my ex-husband Bill standing. That’s a part of Richard painted in the lighter green, slightly hidden behind Steve’s backpack. That’s Steve’s dog “Lexi” happily striding on the left.

Thanks to Mike Jenkins for the tip.
