Matters Familia - Hidden Treasures
My great aunt Annet could render some beautiful scenes in pen and ink. In the entire time I knew her, though, I'd never seen her do it and my only evidence was two pen-&-ink drawings of some sailboats that were framed and hanging on her wall.
In going through her house recently, I came across two more stashes of artwork, all done in 1905 and 1906 when she was 10 and 11 years old. They're wonderful. I also found a lovely photo of Annet in her graduation dress. Thought I'd share.
