Blaine Arthur Cota Jr self portrait. (askart.com)

A sample of Blaine Arthur Cota Jr’s abstract impressionism

My father’s cousin was a well known fine artist.┬áHe happened to be much older than my dad, so, they didn’t grow up together. According to the 1940 census, Cota was born in 1924, my dad, born in 1940. Still, I think it is interesting family history. I wish he were still alive because I have lots of questions, but I know he will be a topic at the next Cote family reunion (his mother was a Cote).

More interesting info.
