FAMILY NARRATIVE

Tell the story of this family here. 

Marjorie was a portrait Artist.

She was self-taught based on her study of the old masters. She painted since about 1967, but became serious about expanding her ability to paint, especially portraits beginning about 1985, at about age 47. She continued to paint portraits as well as scenery until about age 80. The last portrait she started and never completely finished was of her grandson, Jeff and his wife, Samantha's wedding portrait. Her daughter now has the collection of family history portraits she has painted.
