This painting now hangs in the St. Jane House, an urban retreat center and house of hospitality in Minneapolis. Such a fitting place for this piece to hang! Its title "For Shug And Celie" is a tribute to two characters in the book/movie "The Color Purple" where Shug says to Celie, "I think it p*ss God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it." We so easily overlook and neglect the ones God values as beautiful! I'm so happy this painting will bring smiles to some of those in need of retreat and hospitality in such a place as The St. Jane House.
