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

Reading this awesome magazine at the beach called The Wild Woman magazine! Get your copy♥️ at The Rusty Porch or Sweet Salvage Springfield Oregon.
“Women need women. We do. A lot of times we don’t like to admit it because we’ve been hurt or we’re insecure or jealous, but the bottom line is we desperately need the authentic versions of each other.
We need to see the real behind the journey. There is power in owning and telling our stories and there is power in hearing and reading the stories of women just like us who have dared to say yes to living the life they were created for. We don’t just think this is true, we know it as a fact and we’ve seen it played out in real life!
Working with women for years in all different capacities, from business and ministry to coaching and just being friends, we have seen the story of an ordinary woman spark a flame in a crowd of 100+. We have experienced the freedom that comes when we are secure enough in who we are to open up and be vulnerable, and we want you to experience that same thing!
Our goal is not to show you pretty pictures of what you don’t have or showcase the lives of women you could never be. Our vision is to inspire you and even give you tools to boldly go after your dreams, better marriages, deep friendships, health, and wholeness.
It takes grit to be a Wild Woman. You have it, let us help you unleash it!”
