Grandma Zarski Paintings

My Husband's Russian grandmother died this year, she was almost 100! She painted well into her late 80's. Sometimes she would scrape off the paint and paint back over her canvasses in the Wintertime. She grew a large garden, kept sheep and was a talented cook. Her are some of her impressionistic oil paintings, almost all were landscapes. These are the ones we have at our home. Maybe she wasn't the most talented artist, but I love that she kept doing it!

Georgia o'Keefe painted well into her 80's, even after she couldn't see anymore. Her paintings were beautiful. I think these are beautiful too.
