Troublesome Creek

Troublesome Creek. Original painting 8" x 10" acrylic on thick, acid-free paper. Inspired by The Blue Fugates of Troublesome Creek, Kentucky. They were a family known for carrying the genetic trait that led to the disease, methemoglobinemia, which gives those who have it blue skin.

Painting does not contain the "My Good Babushka" watermark that was included here for security purposes. By Julie Kwiatkowski Schuler.

I love "Troublesome Creek", it reminds me of the Woolpit Green Children and that folktale/legend about them. Incidentally, I cannot find your "follow" button. :(
