     When I was a teenager, I caught a Red Eft Salamander in a lake in North Carolina.  Uncle Frank was visiting at the time; he was fascinated with the creature.  Upon his return to Baltimore, he painted Two Snowy Owls gazing in awe at the Bright Red Salamander.  That painting hangs in Mom's living room.

     We once talked with Uncle Frank in Baltimore; he had returned from a European trip to study the works of Sir Peter Paul Rubens, and was anxious to tell of his Journey.  (Uncle Frank was a renowned expert on Rubens, and was welcome in the inner recesses of the Great Museums of Europe).  Frank Redelius was a spirited Artist, very passionate - he broke down in tears as he spoke of "Holding the Works of Rubens in My Hands".

Hi, Fred -- a nice tribute piece for your Great Uncle.  It is nice that you will have not only the memories of him, but also his legacy as an artist.

Fred, I am sorry to hear about your Uncle, he was very talented and his paintings are beautiful.  I love oil paintings and tried my hand at it in my youth in Baltimore, MD where I grew up!

Cheryl, thank you.  It is amazing what an artist can do.  Uncle Frank would lay a bowl of fruit next to a violin on a table, or perhaps some flowers in a vase, and he would create a colorful masterpiece using oil paints on a piece of canvas.

Eric -   Listening to Uncle Frank talk about the Flemish Masters as if they were his personal friends - it was very moving.

Christine - my family on Mom's side has been in Baltimore since the days of Lord Baltimore.   Mom lives today in Owings Mills, MD which is northwest of the city.   However, Mom (and the rest of us) grew up in Venice, Florida just up the beach from Naples.    Thanks for your kind words.

Fred, My mom lives in the house I grew up in, outside of Towson.  My two sons both live in Parkville and I "flew" as far south as I could get to be in a warm beautiful place!

Fred,

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. It must have been neat to have someone like your uncle Frank in the family. I'm sure you learned a lot from him.

Hi - Thank you for sharing information about your uncle. I have two of his works on ebay right now, and so I wanted to learn more about him. These are prints on wood I think, but they are so beautiful. My father was an artist too, same style. He recently passed away as well. All the best!

Hi, Laura.   One of the challenges with my late Uncle's original works are the medium that he used.  He experimented with many types of canvas, and many types of paint.   Some original works have not aged as well as others.

 Thanks for commenting, and best wishes on your eBay sales!

   May your father rest in peace.
