    Alex Duke descends from a family of distinguished artists and notable personalities , most especially his great , great aunt Mildred Duke , his great grand mother Henriette Duke and his great aunt Elayne Reynolds Duke who currently still resides in Baltimore , Maryland .
    What a pity he has never known any of them ! He would have been proud and honored by
    their talents and accomplishments ; and most especially for having received something of their God given gifts in his own special dedication to Art .
