It is with painfully heavy hearts that we announce the passing of artist Eve Wheeler. In honor of Eve we will be donating a portion of her sales along with a beautiful canvas of her artwork to Haven Hospice in Gainesville, Florida. Eve had been with Penny Lane since 2015, she will be sorely missed.
