Painting George

We have a lot of creatives in my family.
My mom wanted to be an actress and took acting classes.
*i can hear my baby brother laughing because she did a good job acting all her life*
My baby brother was a frustrated songwriter and piano-man.
My grandmother did every type of needlework, as did her mom,
and they went beyond the craft into the expressive forms.

But nobody “made” it….
Hence we’ve always thought there was a family curse.

I have tried selling my art for 20 years.
I finally had to admit, yuppers, family curse…

But then yesterday Mitchell pointed out that my art is going to hang on the wall
of the grand Reception Room of the Washington State Legislative Building.
I am doing the replacement flag of the historic first flag!

Maybe the family curse is broken!
