Decided I better give some recognition to the other side of the family for their art talent. My aunt, Joanne Thompson, (1923-2002) was asked to feature her art work in one of the Walter T. Foster drawing booklet in the 1960's. She loved to draw family members in charcoal and painted many portraits in oil. These are some examples of the drawings in the booklet. In my younger years I tried to draw some of her drawings free hand with little success. Always shyed away from portraits, but now love to paint portraits and figures.
