The little red-haired boy, formerly the little sad boy

The Little Red Haired Boy 

My sister noticed his red hair which is unusual so I decided to change his sobriquet to The Little Red Haired Boy from  The Little Sad Boy.  That makes things a lot happier.

 I finished his outside frame ( a patch job at best) and that will have to do for now.  He is in the old part of the house and I hope he feels good about being there--better that being rolled up and tossed in an attic.

 I need to show you his mother and his sister.

 I have several proposed names for sister...the Elf  Child,  or Salem's child,  of Little Ev ( short for Evil) or "the for sale would anyone want her? Child".....

Mom looks typically primitive and too busy for a portrait sitting with farm and house work to do.   Now you understand why Little Red Hair got the frame and the other two got the "maybe later."

Mom is going to Tennessee.


  1. LOVE the Mama! She is wonderful to me. So is the little girl. You have the best pieces. I would like to see more pictures, please.

  2. Hello
    I'm visiting from Betty's. You picked a good home for her.

  3. Love them all. That red hair is stunning!

  4. I came over from Betty's, you are an awesome person to give the picture to her. May you be blessed as you have blessed!

  5. Sister has found a resting place in our guestroom above the fireplace. It is very much comforting to know that the trilogy of paintings reside in the homes of friends who really appreciate them.

  6. I love it all. What a wonderful home full of treasures. If I ever sell my Ante Bellum home I want to get a new one in the country simular to yours. Richard from My Old Historic House.
