Mark Twain and a Friend

As you can see, Portrait Artist Susan Durkee, has been hard at work this winter at her studio on Mark Twain Lane in Redding, Connecticut. Susan is a huge fan of Twain's life and over the years we have become good friends. This past Monday I was in Redding exploring options for Centennial Celebrations in 1910 and I stopped up to see Susan for her input.

I was greeted with a pleasant surprise, to say the least! The print above is one example of her work to-date, there will be others showcased online in the near future. I think all Twainiacs will love what she has done for a Centennial Calendar which includes the print above surrounded by vignettes of his life in Redding. I hope to post that soon.
