Loretta Swit was invited into our homes each week during her 11 years as a member of the cast of “M*A*S*H” – one of television’s most iconic series.
But even during the “M*A*S*H” years and beyond, Swit says that her first love was never far away - painting in watercolor – something she had been doing since the age of six.
