1st ed.
The author finished the drawings in this book in 1937 when the images were fresh in her mind. Together with the story, they give an insight into what many artists were doing in the twenties and thirties, not only as an aftermath of the depression in the United States but as a lifestyle-a way of living creatively and artistically in an atmosphere more conducive than city life. While Myrtle and Wilfred Stedman's art thrived in the city (Houston, Texas) during the seven years before the depression, their reputations as artists grew to the point that they felt they could go anywhere and do anything. Myrtle describes the adventure of moving to northern New Mexico where their skills and their joy in art and architecture rose to unexpected heights in spite of hard times in the economy and in their private life. * * * * * Myrtle Stedman was a member of PEN New Mexico, a branch of PEN Center USA West of International PEN and believed that there is no end to what the mind can do with the eye and hand, in time and in spirit. She is also the author of "Adobe Architecture," "Adobe Remodeling and Fireplaces," "House Not Made with Hands," "Of One Mind," "Of Things to Come," "Ongoing Life," "Rural Architecture," "The Ups and Downs of Living Alone in Later Life," and "The Way Things Are or Could Be," all from Sunstone Press.
