2. A family picture from about 1961. Aunt Pauline at right holding her granddaughter Judy; my granddad Bud Barrett and my grandmother Nell Barrett. Cousin Donna at left and her daughter Debbie in front.
WHILE IN BIRMINGHAM IN JANUARY 2017 I TOOK PICTURES OF ALL THE PAINTINGS DONNA STILL HAS AT HER HOME. I'VE ALSO CONTACTED COUSINS TO REQUEST THEM TO SEND ME PICTURES OF ANY PAINTINGS DONE BY DONNA OR HER MOTHER, MY AUNT PAULINE SMITH.
I APOLOGIZE FOR THE POOR QUALITY OF THESE COPIES. I SHOT THEM WITH MY IPAD AND MANY ARE NOT WELL FOCUSED. ALSO, BECAUSE OF THE WAY THEY WERE HUNG ON THE WALL, I WAS NOT ABLE TO SHOOT SQUARELY, TO KEEP THE PERSPECTIVE CORRECT.
I understand from Donna that she did not 'name' any paintings, so just to help keep them straight and identify them, I'm given them names descriptive of the subject. The still life ones I call SL 1 , SL 2, etc. The landscapes are designated LDSCP.
These are not presented in any chronological order, but I have placed them in somewhat of a 'subject' order.
