First thanks to all of you who didn't think 60 is old. I sure don't feel 60. I feel like I did when I was in my 30s only with a few more aches. LOL And speaking of age some of you know that my heart, my grandmother passed away a few years ago at the age of 104. Yep. She was so sharp of mind that if her body had not said enough is enough she would still be here critiquing my art. I was going through a box of "stuff" the other day and came across a magazine that my Nan put out from her art store. It is so amazing to touch something of the past that was so important to my Nan. She was the first woman to open and art supply, school, and framing store in Bremerton WA. My grandfather hand crafted all of the frames. He was an amazing woodwright. Anyway the information in the magazine is so perfect for today's artists. I see, especially on the back page how my Nan put her push for women's rights and equality. She was a master artists and teacher and never got tired of showing others how to find their way through art.
Marry's Gallery and Art School was started in 1938, this magazine was the May/June issue of 1968.
Here is my Nan in her art school having a showing. I am not sure what year this is.
I now see where I get my chin and jowls. LOL
Have a great day everyone!
My Nan Dorothy Marry
