I’d like to add to your selection of artwork by noted fan artist Jerry Burge, who left us much too soon.This 15 X 20” painting was the first work Jerry did in oil. I commissioned it (paid him ten whole dollars-- in advance!) when I first met him in Atlanta in 1952. It arrived in early 1953, and has had a place of honor on my study wall for over 50 years now.
