PAINTING:  I have in my possession a framed water color picture that was my parents, George and Imogene Stephens. It is a water color of a plant with flowers and was framed at Studio and Camera Shop in Sweetwater. The picture and frame probably date back to the late 40's or early 50's. The artists initials on the picture are BH, but no name. It was probably some local artist or a friend of my family. Does anyone know who the artist might be or can give me information on the framing store?  Dan Stephens
