Painting Presented to Pastor Larson

Alice and Pastor Bernie Larson receive Roland Lee painting at retirement party

We were able to be present at a retirement party for our friends Pastor Bernie and Alice Larson last night. The members of the New Covenant Christian Center where he has pastored for many years joined together and presented them with one of my original paintings as a going-away gift. Although not members of their church, my wife Nellie and I have enjoyed fellowshipping with them on a number of occasions, and admire the way they reach out with hands of friendship to everyone in our community. We respect them deeply and will miss them.


Most years I give a painting demonstration during the Art in Kayenta outdoor art Festival held near St. George Utah each February. I took the day off this year to just enjoy the incredible scenery and chat with the visiting artists. Among my artist friends exhibiting were watercolorist Diane Adams, and her husband sculptor Doug Adams. I will be doing a watercolor presentation to Diane's Cache Valley Watercolor Group in April at Logan Utah.
