Listed among Minnesota’s official symbols, is the official State photograph, called “Grace”, by Eric Enstrom, taken in 1918, in Bovey, MN. Enstrom’s daughter made numerous oil paintings of the photograph. I’ve had a copy of the painting in my dining room for a long time.
Goodnight just came back from poking around in a thrift shop. She had a big grin on her face and a very large package in her arms.
“I bought something for you, Grammy.”
She bought me a print of a photograph that compliments Enstrom’s Grace. It’s called “Gratitude” by Jack Garren, taken in the 1960′s, in Centralia, IL.
Looks like I have to rearrange the art on the wall in the dining room to make room for “Gratitude.”
Thank you Goodnight.
