Gold Medal

My arts education started in a little different way. There were no after school classes; it was really all on my own. The reference material for me was a set of World Book encyclopedias (1952 edition) I like to draw the flowers in an old large empty ledger that my mother used to paste recipes into. She was happy to let me fill it up with drawings. My favorite section was the costume color plates. They took me away to exotic and historic places and I loved drawing them. I wish I still possessed the book but it is long gone.
