Joanna’s Wedding Portrait

September 1, 1936

Joanna Stouffer Wilkinson’s (my maternal grandmother) wedding portrait from 1946. I have inherited the painting that is in the fireplace hearth. Joanna painted this some time in the 1920’s or 1930’s.



Art, Frank Wilkinson

Speedball Sticks Advertisement

December 1, 1935

I found this ad for Speedball Sticks pens. I am fairly certain that I have seen these stick figures in one of my grandfather’s (Frank Wilkinson) notebooks. So I am think this is an ad he did the artwork for.

Speedball also seems to be very popular with artists, even today. So he may have just kept this because he liked the ad. The films in this ad are all from the early 1930’s, so this would have been very early in Frank’s career.

Joanna and Aunt Hallie

July 1, 1933

This picture was take in Atlantic City. I am not sure of the date, probably in the 1930’s. Joanna Stouffer Wilkinson (left) Hallie Orner (?) on the right. Not sure if Hallie was my grandmother’s aunt or great aunt.
