In Her Youth

In Her Youth

I found this picture of my Ma. It has to be in the late 1930’s or early 1940″s. The photo was a wallet size reprint. Ma had past several years earlier so naturally I called Dad. I wanted to know if he knew where this was taken and what kind of car this was. Dad was in his early 80’s by this time. I tried to describe the photo to him. He didn’t seem to remember it. So I decided to read what Ma had written on the back. It read,
“This is me.
My boyfriend and I took pictures all that day. You can tell by my hair that it was rather windy.”
Dad still had no answer to where this was taken.
When I asked him about what kind of car he had when they dated his reply was,” We never had a car date. I did not own a car until after we had been married.”
Which only added to the mystery of this photo for me. Was my Mother leaning on a strangers car? Or was this shot taken before she met my Dad? Dad seemed to think it was before he had met Ma.
I never really found out the story but I did decide that this would be a great challenge for me to recreate in a much larger scale. 32’X40″. Plus I added some color.

Welcome to my world!

Welcome to my world!

This is a place to view the art that I have created. I hope that you will find it at the very least, interesting.

Most of my work is done in colored pencil. Anything that is not or is mixed media I will make note of.  I try not to stagnate in one theme or concept. I like to work with a wide range of subject matter. I become bored if I stay with one thing too long.

I do hope you are entertained, amazed and inspired by what you will see and read here, so take your time and enjoy the world of ” The Dirt Farmer’s Wife.”

Thanks for stopping by.

I am an artist, a mother, a wife, and a dreamer. I am myself. Fifty-ish. Opinionated. Self-taught in my medium, taught by others in life.
