"Art for the Heart"



A while back, a customer from Tennessee asked me to paint a rendering of her childhood home. It has meant a lot to her and her family and friends. It was a large piece, 15 X 22, and as I painted it, I formed a connection to that home and its history. She wrote articles for her hometown newspaper, and shared her story. Tom Cox, the artist. 




Below are comments by the owner as well as by friends and family from a social media posting

MY PRECIOUS MAMA'S HOUSE ON ------- CITY ROAD. SHE WAS THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSON IN MY LIFE. THIS IS WHERE ALL THE ------------- BOYS AND THEIR SISTER WERE RAISED AFTER BEING RUN OUT OF SOUTHSIDE. LOL SINCE THEY WERE SMALL BOYS WHEN THEY LEFT THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE RIVER.
