Laurie from Camarillo, CA wrote to tell me her father-in-law, who spent most of his life in Wilmerding, PA, passed down an original oil painting by H. Lewis to her husband, Jim Stirone. It had been hanging on the living room wall for most of Jim’s life in his father’s home. This particular painting was not dated with a year, as most aren’t.
The painting is a landscape of an autumn day, with a winding path along side a winding still creek. Hubert often incorporated water into his landscapes.
Laurie wrote “I am excited to read your book about Hubert and I am amazed by his life in the steel mills to painter.”
Thank you for sharing photos of the painting, Laurie. I enjoy showing my great grandfather’s work.
