Default Dorothea Frye

There was a lot more to Dorothea than artistic paintings. She was an excellent musician and singer, and an avid correspondent with many excellent ideas. For some abstruse reason she tended to denigrate herself, saying her works were not up to some unattainable ideal, while others viewed them with awe.
When I think of her, I recall impeccable grooming. She was the sort of person who could and did all sorts of home projects - carpentry, painting, housekeeping - and always with every hair in place, every fold of her clothing just-so and the work itself done with professional expertise. She was an epitome of grace.
