Sarnoff's Featured Artist of the Month - DeAnn Melton

Why I Shop at Sarnoff

Sarnoff's makes it possible for me to do what I want to do in a project or painting. I recently needed dry silver pigments for a restoration. I didn't know what to specifically ask for. I told Henry what I needed to do and he found the pigments immediately.  Again and again he has come across over the years with the paint and materials I want. Sarnoff Art is a wonderful resource which eases the way to create.

Miracle Maxx is a true story about a horse who beat the odds. Maxx is severely bitten by a rattlesnake. If he lives there is the possibility of the loss of his left hind leg.

This children's book is about a young girl who gives him love, care, and music to help him perform again.
