I've taken a lot of pictures, so they will have random pictures on Facebook and Twitter to sift through. The pictures mark big and small events in my life. Pictures aren't the only thing that mark the moments and memories of my life. I also paint. My paintings are inspired by the people that I know, the places that I've gone, the things that I dream about, etc. I hope that when the next generation looks that my paintings they think about what might have inspired the piece. Knowing the history behind my own work, when I found the drawings of Curtis Wiklund on Pinterest I had to share this site.
Even though painting is something that I love to do, I haven't really thought about it as a way to pass on history to my descendants as specifically as this artist does. Curtis Wiklund's site has changed my mind. Curtis, whether or not he has done it intentionally, has created an amazing family history resource for his descendants.
I have to admit that I'm pretty inspired by Curtis. I think I might try drawing a few events. Will you?
