Rose Walton "In The Meadow"
Rose Walton is a self-taught artist, never having gone to school past the 12th grade, and having been "arting" for as long as she can remember. Her earliest memories of creativity are of making doll dresses out of candy wrappers and constructing animal figures from the wet mud found down near my uncles natural spring, or collecting discards of bottle caps, string, and old tin cans to make "people families" with twig arms and green stick legs. She had the luxury of a childhood spent in exploring her tiny world to the fullest. From going on "safari" with her 6 brothers to white mountain to look for buried treasures (white mountain was a junk pile out in the woods) to exploring natures cast offs of bird's eggs and acorns in the meadow behind her home. *
