Mareth Warren Hello Carol,

I discovered the wonderful photo of your grandmother on Ancient Faces titled Simon Children. I do historical figurative painting with Watercolor and I would love permission to paint from this photo as a reference. I would possibly enter it in a national watercolor show if it turns out how I would like. Otherwise I will show it in a one-man show in March or Next November at a gallery. I always send a jpg of the completed work to the owner of the photo. You can visit my website at [external link] to see some of my work. Please email me at marethw@comcast. thank you in advance for your consideration. I am happy to send you jpgs of other historical ones I have painted. Kind regards,

Mareth Warren
