baxter knowlton

S and I were devastated to learn a few years ago that our favorite Oxford restaurant (and site of many of our early dinner dates) had closed.

L & M's was a wonderfully authentic, rustic Italian restaurant and salumeria on the town square. Sadly, their website is still kicking even if the kitchen isn't...

The restaurant had a wonderful ambience with deep mustard colored walls covered with oil paintings from Little Rock-based artist Baxter Knowlton.

I would love to save up and purchase one of Knowlton's pieces for our home one day. Not only do I love his work, but I'd love for us to dine under those same great pieces that overheard our first dinner conversations years ago.

Here are a few samples of Knowlton's works. Does anyone know a gallery where they are sold?
