My ancestors aren't so far removed - they're my dad and uncle. My dad is on your left hand side, the boy with all the hair (yes, my hair looked like that when I was a kid, much to my chagrin!) My dad was a twin, but his twin Florian, died before his first birthday. My grandparents owned a tavern in Chicago. My gram cooked there...she was an awesome cook. My gramps was the bartender owner, so the boys were on their own a lot, although they lived upstairs. I gently colored a copy of the photo with watercolors and present it as my answer to the challenge.
Born and raised a city girl (Chicago). Now I live 23 miles south of D.C. Have loved art all my life. Primarily self taught. Raised 3 sons solo and they are my pride and joy. I have a 7 yr old granddaughter and a 2 year old grandson. They are the apples of my eye, and I hope they will love art as I do.
