MARQUETTE, Mich. (WJMN) – A loving tribute to a woman with compassion and love for others. Paul Schumacher has been honoring the life of his late wife Susan by sharing her art with the world.

The final sale of the remaining artworks available for “adoption” will be held Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., March 26th and 27th, at FlowerWorks at 1007 N. 3rd St, in the heated Greenhouse.

“We have a great selection of unique, beautiful and special paintings and picture frames that were created by Susan,” Schumacher said. “All those who have purchased a painting or frame have been totally pleased, and the stories of why they bought that particular artwork were heartfelt and sincere,” said Paul Schumacher, organizer of the art sale in loving memory of his late wife, Susan Reyes Schumacher.  “Many mentioned how that particular painting reminded them of places they had been, or their children, or were just awed by the beauty of that artwork.” Included with each piece will be provenance documents and a picture album of Susan.
