Quick Note

Sorry for the long delay in posting. After a long illness, my sweet mother-in-law, who was 89, died very peacefully in her sleep this week. My husband and his sister were at her side.

I started an oil portrait of her last week and am anxious to get back to it.

Sad times for us all to bury our parents. Their beautiful light will continue to shine in the love they leave behind! I loved the photo you posted, and I'm sure you'll bring much life to her painting!

I saw her obituary and beautiful face in this morning's paper and wondered if she were part of your family. Clearly, she was an extraordinary person! So sorry for your loss.
