Great Aunt Carrie's Floral Paintings

My Grandmother Ogle's sister Carrie Weddington (They were both Spencers before marriage.) was an artist and love to paint, and we have several of her oil paintings. They were children of a farmer and village blacksmith, Ira Lorenzo Spencer, in tiny Lois, Tennessee, in Moore County, which is very remote and rural, even today. These two floral pieces have been traded around the family, and I recently rescued them from Mom's outbuilding to display in our living room.
