Pepper Davis "Dirt in the Skirt"

James has created this new painting for Pepper's book "Dirt in the Skirt" which will be released this spring. Limited edition giclees signed by Pepper and James are available now.

Pepper's Bio:
Lavone “Pepper” Paire Davis was born in May 1924 in California. She attended the University High School in West Los Angeles. From the very beginning “Pepper” had a couple of passions in her life…..Baseball and writing. Front the time she was old enough to work, she played ball with her Big Bro Joe and from the time she was old enough to talk, wrote Poems and songs in her head, then wrote them down when old enough to write. Pepper grew up during the 1930’s depression, playing softball three nights a week, bringing home gas money and food from her sponsors. Baseball became a way of life for her, something similar to breathing.
