WORDLESS WEDNESDAY - Aunt Dot, painting in public
In the above photo she is on the ground, painting with her husband, Gustav Mathieu, at the side. She was quite comfortable painting in public, apparently. A small photo album of her war years in San Francisco shows many different settings where she is painting on the ground, with people watching...
Late in life, living in Greenwich New York, she became quite demented and was hospitalized rather suddenly. Unfortunately many of her treasures were lost to us all, including the large wonderful photo album of the family in years past. What a treasure that could have been. Sadly, gone now. Two of her long-time best friends talked with me about her life in San Francisco, her art, and her love of textiles and clothes with a flair. They all worked in design for textiles, in New York, where she settled in Greenwich.

Family, friends, and others - I hope you enjoy these pages about our ancestors and their lives. Genealogy has become somewhat of an obsession, more than a hobby, and definitely a wonderful mystery to dig into and discover. Enjoy my writing, and contact me at celia.winky at gmail dot com if you have anything to add to the stories. ... Celia Lewis
