As a child, the Seattle Art Museum was like a second home for me.

I was even fortunate enough to be able to take art art lessons for children taught by Dr. Fuller, the director of the Seattle Art Museum, in the early 1950’s.

I loved to climb all over the camels and the rams. Today, I use those vivid childhood memories in my painting.

Every visit to Volunteer Park or the museum included a camel ride. Here, my brother and I are intrepid travelers braving the arid wastes. One of my most vivid SAM memories is being taken to see the movie “Alice in Wonderland” — not the animated version, but with actors— Cary Grant and WC Fields. I was about three, and had never seen a movie before. I was terrified and had to be taken home. And about thirty years later falling in love with Bartok at the Sunday afternoon chamber concerts.

I have a dim, flickering memory of this visit to the museum. It was 1955, and I was about 3 1/2. As always, my mom faced me right into the sun, so I was squinting. Glad to be one of many, many generations to be photographed astride the camels!
