Yesterday, I was delighted to have James Nicoloro, famed PBS/Discovery Channel Director and Producer here at my Studio filming me paint the portait of Isabel Lyon for his upcoming Documentary "The Redding Mark Twain".
As I develop her portrait her character will be revealed in the Documentary..what a exciting idea! Mark Twain owned my property and called it The Lobster Pot" he gave Isabel Lyon, The Lobster Pot, as a Christmas Gift in 1907. When Isabel was not living at Stormfield with Mark Twain she was living here with her mother. She Loved the Lobster Pot and called it her "Darling " home. I have written below about this very controversial woman who was so intimate with Mark Twain in his last years.
