Shanghai 1914, Grandma teaching English update


This painting is now on display in the Children's corner at the Philomath Public Library. There are some changes since I last posted this picture. I added some senna color to my great grandmother's wig. I think she might have had a wig although she might have had a full thick head of hair. Also I added a book.

Father read me Aesops Fables because he remembered them from his childhood. He shared his enthusiasm for them with me. So I added a copy of an old edition of the Fables found on line along with some heirlooms I do have. This painting may lead to another with my father playing.
