My Great, Great Grandmother’s Painting


My family treasure is an old painting that my great, great grandmother painted because she was a painter.

She was born in 1890 in Stratford or New Plymouth.  Her name was Ethel Jane Linn.  She painted it in 1908 when she was 18.  She would be 117 years old now if she was alive. It hangs on the bedroom wall at my nana’s house.

One day it will be passed down to my mum.  My mum will probably pass it down to my oldest sister called Casey.
