Frances, my cousin, from Oklahoma City to Tulsa and Brummet showed us paintings he had done that were hanging in their apartment. They all told a story. For years they sent us Christmas Cards that had copies of his paintings with Indian Christmas themes. I think I have some still. I have given some to our children for keep sakes.
