Mother Taylor

The back of the photograph above says "Mother Taylor- Ted's grandmother". It was tucked inside a book I picked up years ago at an auction. It is one of my favorite Iowa winter images. I love Mrs. Taylor straight forward stare down. She could be standing by sunflowers on a hot summer's day and she'd have the same look. The depth of the snow cracks me up,too. It's got to be at least 4 feet! Anyway, I pulled it out today to share. We had a balmy 3° this morning but it did warm up later. Worked on my author's questionnaire all day. Tomorrow I get to draw.

I like Mrs Taylor- looks like my great grandmother. Thanks for the look into a bit of history- and the reference for costumes of that era and the farm house is wonderful.
