Customer Question

I am r maximal youngest nephew. My mother was sister Nellene Ballinger Wilson 2nd older sister. He the youngest (he&twinRex) of eight children of E B (Emmett &Rebecca(Needman Ballinger ). I have 3 small pieces of his work. I was only in the 4 th grade of school when he died. He was in Madrid Spain when he passed in his sleep the night before he was to speak with King Ferdinand about the atomic energy program. His request to be cremated was completed, it was a month, before the remains were returned to the states. His cremains were placed in Slagle Cemetery in Polk County near Bolivar, Mo. If you could advise me how to purchase some traditional land scapes ( would like color) pieces I would be very grateful. My mother home burnt and we lost all of the pieces she had. Thank you in advance.

Hello, I have been searching all data bases I have to find Ballinger art pieces for sale. Currently there are no paintings for sale. I have listed two sites below that list his paintings when they are for sale. One you can register and they will notify you the second link you would need to check often to see when any of his paintings are for sale.

I have searched all sites and have found no paintings for sale anywhere.

the above link you sign up to buy his paintings s they become available this site notifies you of what they have found and will allow you to view and seek purchase if interested.

the site above lists his paintings when they are for sale. you will just need to check it often to see when anyone has a listing for sale.

also you will want to try as several of his sketches, paintings and prints have sold in the past on ebay. Currently there are none up for sale.
