"Saturday Mornings"

Lauren, now 11, created this original painting in August of 2011.

16"x 20" Acrylic-on-Canvas, "Saturday Mornings" is freely and loosly rendered in an artistic "pencil-marks-still-showing" fashion.

Lauren recalls taking Ballet Classes Saturday mornings when she was younger.

She loves the warm colors.

"American Glory"

Lauren's original 16"x 20" Acrylic-on-Canvas painting, "American Glory" has been hand-produced multiple times to date. Recipients have loved the "pencil-marks-still-showing" artistic touch.

Lauren's strong passion of American History, as well as her love of creating art birthed this patriotic design, 2011.

"Rodeo Farm" Fiberglass Painted Boot Sculpture

Lauren Wells is one of the youngest artists ever to be commissioned by the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. This petite 7-year old is already a creative giant, and holds a surprising list of creative accomplishments. Lauren worked enthusiastically to complete her creative efforts on her boot, working for hours in 40 degree temperatures and wearing 2-3 layers of clothing, yet capturing the true spirit of the Rodeo from the eyes of a 7-year old. Viewers have been enjoying her painted boot that was recently on display near the Sam Houston Memorial in the museum district.

"The Bridge"

Title: “The Bridge”
Artist: Lauren Wells, age 7
Size: 16” x 20”
Medium: Acrylics on Canvas

Date: May, 2007

Lauren was inspired to do this painting, as she loves water and being outdoors. She is hopeful that it will help the Yes Prep School obtain their goals. (see "Mermaid Greetings" painting below for more about the Silent Auction)

"Coconuts for Sale"

Media: Acrylic on Canvas Size: 30" x 40" Lauren painted this painting in May, 2007, in excitement of Summer vacation. 

"Mermaid Greetings"

Lauren's Painting of a Mermaid was contributed to the Yes Prep School's Silent "Art In Action" Charity Benefit Auction in Houston on May 11, 2007. The purchaser bought it, and returned it to her for her private collection. The proceeds supported 15 Texas high school students and teachers participating in Peace Corps projects in West Africa that summer. The Peace Corps invited them to the villages of Wamfie and Kranka, Ghana. They helped build a community center for youth, many of whom suffer from or have lost parents to AIDS. They helped build homes, created sustainable alternative livelihood projects, and conducted health and HIV/AIDS prevention classes. www.yesprep.org
