I almost forgot about this story until I realized I was saving some of these magnificent watercolors to mail to friends for Christmas. Merry Christmas everyone!!
Per FB “The 80 yr old watercolor artist from Oregon who’s work mysteriously wound up at Goodwill. # Goodwillfinds. I had to photograph as many as I could because they’re amazing! $4.99-$15.99 (poster size). ” FB September 11, 2018
*After making a post on my FB wall I later found out that Jean Fredrickson past away here in Oregon, she was in her 90’s. Jean was an interior decorator in Pacific Grove California. She spent many years painting while living in a magnificent Victorian perched high on a hill a stone’s throw from the beach. She traveled the world with her husband who also loved to paint, but with oils. I wish I could have met Jean, her artwork speaks volumes! Some of her work is from Ireland, I wonder if we went to the same places me and Jean…
Thank you, Jean, for your lovely work!! I met your beautiful daughter and I’m sharing your story with my friends as well as displaying your paintings! xo
