Pauline Beatrice Banes (1921 - 2007)
(beloved mother of fellow artist Lida Criner)
Pauline Beatrice "Maca" Banes (1921 - 2007), grew up in Bisbee, Arizona, married and came to Arkansas where she lived with her four children, Lida, Sue, Bill and Theresa. All of her children as well as her sister, the late Agnes Armstrong were artistically inclined.

Pauline, whose grandfather was George Frederick Earle, of Maine (1844 - 1898), was happy to learn that she had come from a long line of well-known American artists. She said, "It means so much to know from where we came, and who we are." Ms. Banes painted landscapes of scenes near her home in the Ozarks at Western Grove, Arkansas.

She began studying with Joanne Steiler, of Deer, Arkansas late in life and discovered that she had more talent than she imagined. Ms. Banes loved trees, clouds and streams and focused her talent on those ideas.
