Grandma Moses Revisited

Class Artwork

Grandma Moses 'Little Boy Blue' from 1947

Yesterday I had the pleasure of sharing one of our dozen ‘Visits with an Artist’ with assisted living folks at Richmond PACE.  We visited with  Anna Mary Robertson Moses  (1860 – 1961), better known as “Grandma Moses.”  She was a renowned American folk artist who didn’t start her paintin career until her mid 70’s.  You may remember my September 16, 2008 post when I presented this program at Covenant Woods.  One of the ladies yesterday was excited to see Grandma Moses painting of apple butter making, as she’d participated in similar events as a young wife in Mechanicsville, VA. Everyone  had a good time and got their brushes wet!  A few efforts even resembled our model print, a bonus!
