Watercolor on antique journal page.
I’m grateful to Dawn Bixby Saari for the use of the photo of her grandmother, Grace Eva Laubach Bixby, at the homestead north of Carter, MT. Photo circa 1927-28. She said her grandmother was probably around 19 in the photo. She had posted this and some other photos on the Montana History Consortium FB page. I think Grace would’ve been a fun, plucky gal to know, but you wouldn’t want to get on her bad side!
I'm happy to announce this piece won 3rd Place in the Hockaday Members Salon People's Choice voting.
