I Forgot I Painted Her

After reading the comment by Christine LeFever, thumb I went to her husband’s website, troche and found the article she was talking about on Fraktur. Gregory has written many very interesting articles in EAL, pharmacy and later today, I am going back to read more. The thing that imediatley caught my eye, was this
fraktur of a woman. I had forgotten that I painted this woman in a mural upstairs in my bathroom, and this picture was my inspiration. It’s been a while since I painted it, but I think this article is where I saw it. It’s not that great, but I just thought you might like to see it anyway. I don’t know why the tulip looks crooked, because it’s perfectly straight on the mural. I guess it’s my camera angle. I don’t have much time this morning. I have to get ready to go to a trade show in King of Prussia, PA. I will also be meeting someone that I met through the internet. Actually, she is a customer of mine. I’m looking forward to meeting her and her daughter. They own a country shop in Washington state, and she has purchased a few DVDs, “Early America” for her shop. If you love antiques, speical effects, and wonderful music, you will enjoy this DVD. Promise. Better get ready. This will be fun. Maybe I’ll get some pictures to post, we’ll see. I’ll tell you all about it tomorrow.
Happy day!

    Oh my, Carole! She is very beautiful. I LOVE that pink tulip!

    That is so cool that you went to Gregory’s website. He will be happy to hear it.

    Ah yes, King of Prussia; I have many kindred spirits who go there. I’ve never gone; maybe some day…

    I want to know who the dealer from Washington state is, because I’m right here in Oregon!

    good morning Carole,

    I Love your fraktur lady and her wonderful tulip. I have loved the original for so long, whenever I see her, she just makes me smile.
    If only we lived closer, I would love to see your beautiful murals in person.
    Every story that you write and every photo that you share is just like stepping into those wonderful old early paintings that I love.
    Thank you so much for such a wonderful place to come to.
    xo,Christe’
