Guest Book

This is a great painting by the artist Paul Blaine Henri that features Raggedy Ann and Andy sitting with a tiger. Paul Blaine Henrie (1932–1999) was an American painter and illustrator who was best known for seascapes and coastal scenes. Henrie was born Paul McKinley Henrie in Tampa, Fl. He established himself in 1960 in the artist community of Laguna Beach, CA where he lived in a hillside home with his wife and child. Henrie later moved to Carmel, CA. Henrie became known for his watercolors and palette-knife oil paintings of California coastal scenes as well as exotic locales he had visited in Tahiti, Mexico and New Orleans. Henrie reserved his best work for his collectors and several prestigious galleries like the Grand Central Art Galleries in New York. Notable celebrities who bought his work included Vincent Price, John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, and Princess Margaret. Henrie also illustrated two books for young adults, Legendary outlaws of the West (1976) and Legendary Women of the West (1978), and wrote a how-to art book titled Painting in the South Seas. This great painting measures 15" x 48" unframed, 21 1/2" x 53 1/4" framed.
