Grandma and Her Children


This is an 81/2 x 11 1/2 Canvas featuring my paternal Grandmother and the children she raised alone after her husband died in a hunting related accident.

Third from top is my Dad and below that  is my Dad with my Auntie Maude. They were very close all their lives.

The document shown is a scan of the original marriage licence. I still have it in the Family Bible.

I feel very fortunate to have these photos and to be able to do  something creative to showcase part of my heritage.
