Lillie, around age 14 or so, drying her hair in the backyard, and peeling potatoes. Love the little clothesline with pins behind her. LOVE this image.
Lillie on the left, with her sister-in-law, Mary, at a county fair. Terrific hats!!!

Next week I will be back to working on my charcoal portrait series. I've been sidetracked by other projects, but plan to spend time downtown in my studio starting on Monday! I have so many great images to work from, thanks to the scanning prowess of my cousin Jon!
I am an artist, an art teacher, a mother of five children, and a grandmother of four, and I live with my husband and our two cats in the woods of Woolwich, Maine. I teach drawing classes through the Continuing Studies Department at Maine College of Art in Portland, and now privately in my new (!) studio @ 72 Front Street, Bath. My blog 'Martha Miller' shares my art, my process, and my inspirations, and my blog 'Not Bad Thing' showcases my daughter Lisbeth's artwork and process. It is also where I share my experience as a mother of an adult child with special needs. You can see more of my artwork on my website @ www.marthamiller.com
