Fine art (and not-so-fine) has been a lifelong passion; I appreciate fine art from the sidelines but enjoy watching grandchildren develop their amazing skill in creating art with every medium they can get their hands on. I personally enjoy painting word pictures as much as using paint or pencils. In particular have I enjoyed discovering and studying paintings of Denmark, especially the pastoral views, imagining my grandmother and her family in the scenes. I smiled when I noted the post on this site mentioning that the last view was by someone in Mississippi; it very well could have been one of my 'cousins' since some of those Danes married and settled in MS; most were in Tennessee after immigration, before spreading out to Michigan, Kentucky, and other states. Jorgen Peter Hansen (Jensen) Schmidt and Metta M. Mathiesen Schmidt, here's to you!
