Yesterday, I found that the Minnesota Historical Society has some of his early watercolor paintings from when he was teaching his class. Now, I will say, these are not his best works, but he was basically learning, himself, I believe. I have been conversing with a person at the MHS about making a book of his pictures for myself and any children that are interested. The pictures are copyrighted to the Society.

I'm so glad I found them, I hated to think that his life was just being born and dying. He was an intelligent, complex man.
