When I was in High school, I entered a painting competition. It was sponsored by the Women of California Historical Society. The contest was to paint a historical site in California. My entry was based on a staute of Mark Twain in Northern California that celebrated Mr. Twain's story about the Jumping Frogs of Calaveras County.....I came in third. That painting is somewhere in the back of my Mother's closet, but it was the inspiration for this painting that I just finished.
