Moving back into the home office and pondering family artists

Posted By on July 30, 2022

This past weekend I started what is going to be a slow, but deliberative process of moving out of the basement and back into the upstairs home office. No window blinds yet, but we did move the oriental rug from our first floor to the upstairs (Brenda would like to get something new for the Great Room). It looks great in the office and deadens the echo sound a little bit.

I will eventually get my maps and nautical charts up on the cork wall and try to rotate a few(1) of my grandmother’s(2) many(3), many(4), paintings(5) (Ruth Bluhm) as well as a couple from my great Uncle Ray Grathwol, but I’m in no rush to hang them.

I own neither of the above 1940s Ray Grathwol “Shanty Town” or Akron city scene,
but will someday archive the art that I do own, including one of our boat Brenich.
