This is one of many paintings made by my grandmother. She graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her name is Evanne Jones. This object is made from very fine paints and demonstrates her incredible talent for painting. It is a picture of a beautiful house surrounded by trees. This painting means a lot to my family because it not only tells the story of my grandmother's fantastic ability to paint, but of what life was like back then. Without the constant distraction from technology, their minds were free to wander, and art was what fascinated my grandmother.
