I finally got out my paints again. I've started a new series of paintings. I'm thinking of calling the series 'Keys to the Past'. Each will contain a key and maybe some hints about my family history. This one is the image of a railroad station in Wainfleet, England. We were there recently when I was trying to get information about my great grandfather who was born in a nearby town, Friskney. I absolutely fell in love with the quaint railroad stations of England that are still in use. We took a train to this area from London, where we stayed. The top image shown below is of course the key. Also is shown a postage stamp with a ship and the queen's silhouette in the corner. The date on the stamp is the date my great grandfather became a naturalized US citizen. The bottom close-up is a 'stamp' showing the town where my great grandfather was born and the date of his birth. I haven't decided what I will paint next, or when since I am now working forty hours a week.
