Hello followers! As you have no doubt seen if you are indeed following, things have been late all of this week. That is because I have been moving. Things will hopefully be back on track by the end of this week or the beginning of next week. And this week there will definitely be an art supply review. Thank you for taking the time to view this site and for your patience in this matter.
The man in the image above is Howard Foley, my grandfather (with my grandmother, Wanda, on their wedding day) . He was born on the 14th of August, 1902. He is the reason I have a quarter of the genes I have. He is the reason my parents took me to vacation in the forrest every summer. He is most likely the reason that I live where I do today (or my family rather). He worked on radios and cars when they were new things. He vacationed in the parks of California more then I can imagine. He loved the outdoors, a love which he passed on to my mother, who passed it on to me. He overcame the emotional toll of the death of his first daughter and never gave up on exploring the wonders of the California countryside. And he inspired a family character that I hope has been inherited by me.
So happy birthday grandpa, wish you could have seen it.
