This is the castle where my great great grandmother on my mother’s side was raised. According to the story, she was knocked up by the gardener and disinherited. She moved to Canada where she worked as a hat maker to provide for herself and her infant son. She eventually married and raised a family. When she passed away her husband remarried, and his jealous new wife burned all of her things, including journals, clothes, and photographs—which is too bad, because those would have been super cool to look through. This castle, however, still stands as a historic landmark in Slovakia.

It is a dream of mine to visit there someday and experience in person this beautiful remnant of my family history.

    I came here from Mark’s site, was admiring this beautiful art and then: wait, what? Orava Castle? What is this doing here? And then I read about your mother’s ancestor. I am from Slovakia and I visited this castle many many times.! Your art is beautiful! God bless you and your work! I hope you will visit Slovakia one day! Jana.
