Thus we grew up surrounded by art and artists. In order to entertain us my Mother encouraged us to draw and paint from an early age. She would have contest and of course we both won. We went to museums and were constantly exposed to art through the Gallery. We met many working artist and grew to appreciate their work. Dad also painted in his spare time, and he restored oil paintings.
