Farm Scene – graphite and crayon – Mildred Burge 1943
Our own Grandma Moses: My Dad’s oldest sister was born in the early 1920s. I spent today going through and scanning some treasures her daughter shared with me – drawings made on found paper. It caused me to wonder a lot about my aunt who died when I was in 5th grade. She was the oldest of 10 and her art and photography has been quite the revelation of a creative young woman with a love for her family and the details of life.

I find myself becoming lost in the details of life in the mid 1900s. It is like an eye spy page -the more I look, the more details I find! Very interesting.
