FROM THE MARUSARZ FAMILY ALBUM--1946

From the Marusarz Family Album--1946  2000 Dolores Marusarz

Shortly after my mother emigrated from Poland to this country, a family gathering at my grandmother's house was photographed in black and white by my father. The photo was always a treasure of mine because it showed the family members happily together. Although the photo is now cracked and dry, deteriorated by age and wear, the painting is bright and lively, a keepsake to hand down to my children. People have also had me make paintings from old family photographs of their ancestors, and these paintings become family heirlooms. This particular painting was done in oils on five-ply birch that had been primed five times with rabbitskin glue and gesso. It is, naturally, not for sale!
