Saints and Angels
I pretty much keep my personal life and family out of my blog, probably more because I am a private person; I don't think they mind one way or the other. I have absolutely the greatest family. They usually don't make visual art, but they do make music and joy and acts of goodness. They are my biggest fans and supporters. My wonderful husband died last week and my world seems very quiet and almost empty. It would be wrong not to speak of it. I showed him this painting of St. Vincent Court; it was the last painting I got to share with him. But who knows? Maybe he sees plenty of things from another vantage point. Maybe he hovers around me and shines in the colors. Remember to treasure your lives and your loved ones and leave the world better than you found it.
