W. Frederick Jarvis
Jaris is my mother's grandfather ("Granded") by marriage, ie he is her grandmother's second husband and my mother is not a blood relative. However, my mother grew-up living with him as he painted. She too sat on his lap and "helped." He was part of her extended family that lived together in California. I don't know all the details, but we have a number of his paintings and my mom has very fond memories of him. He and my great grandmother ("Nana") used to go out and paint small studies cardboard cut from boxes and bring them back home to paint the real pictures on large canvas. Even these cardboard studies are so beautiful that I have them framed as if they were the intended final works.
My Mother took lessons from Mr. Jarvis in Dallas when I was a very small child...before 1940. I have a large landscape he painted called Autumn Gold and also a frame which he made. I can remember sitting in his lap while he taught my Mother and several others. Needless to say our picture is one of our special treasures!
