But above all . . . there was a burst of hope 
above the clouds.

MEMORIES OF YESTERYEAR

VANISHING
10" x 8" pastel + gold leaf
PRIVATE COLLECTION

The start of a new year stimulates celebrations, 
memories, good wishes and reflections of the past. 

Regardless of one's religion or beliefs, death affects 
all. I'm posting this painting of mine not for it's religious 
view, but because it was created while my father was 
on his deathbed. Mortality begged me to consider my 
views. My father was the first of my parents to die 
and his passing saddened me greatly. 

This new years I face the realization that both of my 
parents, as well as my in-laws who I loved dearly have 
died. So in between the joyous celebrations, please 
take a moment to remember the loved ones that have 
passed and smile.

The holidays are upon us . . .  amazing isn't it? 

My apologies for I've been so very quiet here. It's just 
I have been working on commissions, mailing out
purchases and working. 
Just keeping a girl out of trouble.

Anyway, I would be remiss to not express
 my gratitude, for all out there whom have 
supported me in art and encouragement. 
I am ever so thankful!

May each and everyone of you have a wonderful 
holiday and be surrounded with your family and friends.

Subtle, light, sweet . . . and so soft of a touch!

Last weekend I participated in an open art studio

experience and especially after I have been so consumed 
with daily life. 

It also gave me an opportunity to revisit a few older pieces 
of my art. Above is such a precious light piece that makes 
my heart soar when viewing. Definitely is one
of my favorites!
