Cincinnati Painters

Imagine my surprise,
at this, the first, and last
posthumous birthday party
for R.J. Miller,
to find these two spectacular portraits
on display
with the other delectibles

Is it just the subject matter
that makes these paintings
so adorable ?

(my niece, Ashleigh,
with her son, Loki)

My niece, Joanna,
with her daughter, Allea.

I think they really are good paintings
(especially the one of Ashleigh)

And they would add the name of Carin Hebenstreit
to the list of other good Cincinnati painters
who came after Frank Duveneck

like Bessie Wessel

and Dixie Seldon
