Red Header Day

©artist:Linda Molto

Portrait of Isadora DeLaVega created by artist Linda Molto.

A gift from a dear friend and award winning artist.

There was no sitting for this portrait. It was created by the artist from memory.

In her own words, “A tribute to your smile and bubbling personality.”

The artist created only 15. The first is the artists print, I have #2 and 12 have been sold.

One reside in England with an artist and another is in Germany at a private residence.

I can feel her greate admiration and love for me in the portrait.

I view it daily, as it is in my great room, and never tire of admiring her art.

Old Corona Typewriter

Black & White – Traces of the Past 

If you think about it typing on a computer is a magical thing—just hit the keys you want and letters magically appear on a screen in front of you.
Recently, I was browsing at an antique shop when I came across this old Corona typewriter. My trusty camera came out to play and captured it.
There wasn’t a date on the typewriter. The antique dealer thought it was made between 1918 and 1923. I was told that several similar models were made during this period of time when LC Smith and Corona were first merging as companies. This is an impressive antique machine.  The condition of this particular typewriter wasn’t good and the ribbon was missing. I imagine a ribbon could be found on the internet for those who love to restore collectible things.

Color  

In high school, I learned how to type on a typewriter that was like this. It was newer in comparison to this one. Everyone was required to take a typing class even if you weren’t going to be in the secretarial workforce. Gazing at it, all I could think of was how far things have come. We went from a machine that was primarily used in the business world to a computer that is a part of everyone’s daily lives.

I wonder how many young children of grade school age would know what this old typewriter is.

Do you think they’d call it an old computer?
