painting by U.S.A.artist LAURA WHEELER WARING.

What pain is etched on Anna’s face
What is she trying to forget
or maybe to remember.
Such deep sorrow is showing
in every line.

Was it the war years,
did she lose out on love?
Was fate not on her side?
she holds back the tears,
tearing her soul.

The artist eyes can see the pain,
feel the anguish within.
Portraying as a picture of hope,
memories on hold as she waits to
find peace


LAURA WHEELER WARING, known professionally as Laura Wheeler was born 1887 in USA

Native of Connecticut attending Hartford school before going onto Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where in 1914 she won a travelling scholarship.  This was interrupted by the war years, was able to attend classes in 1924-25 classes at the Academie de la Grade Chaumiere in Paris.  Later she taught art in Cheney State Teachers College, Pennsylvania.

Died in 1948 in Philadelphia

    The honesty upon her face. With every line, God's grace you trace. You've searched your soul to mine her thought. But beauty like this just can't be caught.
