Artistic Roots
Ever since I was a young boy, I remember admiring the watercolor landscape that my maternal grandfather owned that was painted by his brother, my Uncle Lou. We now have that painting hanging in our living room. My own interst in watercolor painting no doubt has some roots in this - although I do not endeavor to paint like my Uncle.

He was employed by the Navy as a naval architect and painted watercolors as a very good amateur, active in San Diego.

I did a recent Google search and discovered that some of his work is in the San Diego Museum of Art. Pretty cool!

Here is one of his paintings. Looks like he was looking at modernists like O'Keefe.
