Waverly Anderson Lewis has shared one of her small paintings.  She calls them "sun pictures".  She is painting one each day so hopefully  she will have 365 by the end of the year.  They are  very small paintings.

Thank you Waverly Anderson Lewis for sharing Jim Wheat's art work with us!  Mr. Wheat was an art teacher at Shawnee Mission High School.  He seems to have been very well thought of by a lot of us students.

Jack Makepeace, Beth Randall, Carol Sundell, Pat Wade, Lauren States, and I will remember Jim especially for what I now recognize as raw courage:  he and his wife Eve took us on a trip to Mexico--six teenagers in two cars!  Jim and Eve drove one car, and Pat Wade's mother drove another.  We traveled down I-35 which was under construction in the late '50's.  In Waco where we stopped after the first day of travel, I remember sitting on the steps at the motel looking at a yellow sky.  I had never seen the sky that color before--I figured it must be a Texas thing.  That's just one of many memories I have of that trip, which I now see as a gift from Jim, Eve and Mrs. Wade who shepherded us through Mexico City, Tasco, Tampico, and back to KC. 
 
One time in art class I was having trouble getting started on a project, and I asked him, "How do artists get ideas?"  He answered, "Work breeds work."  I've always remembered that and passed it along to my own students.  He was a fine teacher, and we were lucky to be in his classes at Shawnee Mission.  Jim lost his wife in 1990, and he died in November of 2006.

Artist Statement

A few short years ago I said good-bye to the studio art program I had developed for the University of San Diego High School, and said hello again to the dream of creating my own work. After helping students awaken their hearts and minds to the masterworks of history, I knew it was time to allow my own heart to experience a new level of artistic expression. Each new day gives me a fresh opportunity to dream and create again....and again...and again.
