Gramma Delma's Palette

My Great Grandma Delma will be 113 years old this Halloween.
She was born in 1897 and she was a teacher and an artist.
She painted purple cows, seascapes, landscapes, girls with flowers, and she was also an avid gardener and made the best darn cinammon rolls this side of the mississippi.

This is her palette and her paints. An amazing treasure.
Taking these photos has inspired me to compile and publish a book of her artwork. I always have her kit on my table as a constant source of inspiration.
