Getting the Family Paintings Home–  Dr. Harold Box



Here are my grandfather’s art (5 signed Mississippi Lake paintings by Dr. H.K. Box  Carleton  Place Dentist)) that I purchased last week at an auction. (Mary Henry estate on Bell Street in Carleton Place. They may seem fuzzy because they were all in frames……I’m so happy to have brought them back to the family. Enjoy! –-Gary Box











Linda Tomosky Box At the auction everyone was quiet when the bidding started and Gary was the only bidder. I think people knew who he is and why he wanted the pictures.

Graeme Box Those are great to see.
I used sit with him at that spot on front of the old cottage and he would teach me how he did them. I still have one l did sitting beside him.
