Quick Update

I am sure some of you are starting to wonder if I have chucked all my paints and pens in a drawer and locked it tight. I assure you I have not. Those of you that have been with me the past 9 months of blogging know that I care for my 98 year old Grandmother. She seems to have started into a fairly steep decline and I don't believe that we will have her much longer. At this point, I am having trouble staying focused long enough to get anything down on paper. I know the situation will change soon and am looking forward to, once again, being able to not only focus to paint at home but have the free time to paint in the field. Happy New Year to all of you and thank you for all of you encouragement and support this past year.

My Dearest Friend, As always you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I would be curious what you would paint if you paint your emotional state. Sometimes it's just therapeutic.

Thanks for the update, Tami. It's good to know you're still around. Such times can be difficult, but also rewarding. I wish and your grandmother peace in 2007, and look forward to your return to art - whenever it comes.

Thank you all so much for your sympathy,. Bless your hearts. This time is dark and difficult but I know when she moves on she will be free. This is painful however, to love someone fully and openly guarantees pain when they step away. I am sure her passed family members and friends are gathering for the celebration of her arrival.

God bless you and yours. May the peace and grace of the Lord be with your Gram. At 98 years she must have had a full and love filled adventure. We all get the call when the time is right and my prayers are with your Gram and You.
