This is a picture of my Grandma Bea’s one room schoolhouse back in 1917, Mableton, Cobb Country, Georgia, USA. My grandmother is located in the third row from the top, third row from the bottom, centered perfectly in front of a guy wearing a dark suit. Her white blouse is seen between two girls on the second bottom row.

As an artist I enjoy painting and photographing segments of rural life. Country living became a new world for me back in the sixties when we moved from Chicago, Illinois to East Tennessee. I want to capture what I now see before country living vanishes… at least in my area!
