Among the family memorabilia I have here are two old watercolors, probably from somewhere around a century ago. Both are almost certainly by the same hand, although neither has a signature nor annotation as to the artist. One, however, is initialed 'MC.'
In that she and my grandmother, Mary Koos (Page), seem to have been somewhat close, I could see Mildred giving them to her. Or maybe they are by someone else entirely! They are certainly nothing special from an artistic standpoint, though reasonably competent.
These two pictures have been framed and under glass for most of the past century but I have removed them from their old frames and will, at least for a while, store them somewhere dark for better preservation. Perhaps I'll be able to learn more about them or their painter. That is not really important, however.
