We Learned about Albert Bierstadt, a Famous Landscape Painter.

The artist lived from 1830 to 1902; he must have spent most of that time with a brush in his hand. He painted hundreds of lush, colorful, sweeping yet detailed views of 19th Century wilderness and rural America. (and some in Europe and the tropics, too.) He seems to have captured visions of the entire country. Hubsy liked this one: "Wolf River, Kansas" as much as any of the paintings we saw.

  1. I remember the first Bierstadt I ever saw. It wasn't this one. It was Among the Sierra Nevada Mountains...AWESOME! Love his work!


Grandmother's Birth Anniversary was Yesterday...

My Father's Mother had an unusual first name: Aeleta (later spelled Aleta); it seems to be an ancient first name that makes the rounds...
