I have two storage rooms full of paintings. Some will have to go. I sorted and chose several that were from early learning time and am painting over those. Some paintings I had forgotten about. One was from when my book club was reading about the great influenza epidemic of 1918. This one is titled "Flu" from the marker put on the house by city officials to warn others to stay away. Since people were afraid to go into those homes, if the patient died, he/she was propped up in the window for viewing before burial. Funerals were not held as it would spread the sickness. There is a painting to be done there! I may be inspired to do it at some point.
