A Time For Art ~ Cancun

I finally had some time to paint a little and tried my hand at plein aire while vacationing in Cancun.  Sitting poolside, it was difficult to hold on to the paper while the flower kept blowing away. Hats off to those who do this feat every painting! Speaking of which, my hat kept blowing off, too - though it was an awesome hat if I do say so myself.  Hopefully no flower experts will critique the accuracy of this hibiscus and the surrounding plant leaves!  Not enough time to finish it, but that's ok.  It just felt good to paint!

We celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary.  Married at just 19 years old, I've loved him my whole adult life!

A Tribute to Kitty Bradford

Kitty Bradford went to be with the Lord on February 11th, 2014, leaving a legacy of love and devotion to her family.  At 77 years old, she still worked and tirelessly poured out her heart to her husband, Newman, her six children, their spouses, children and great-grandchildren.  Miss Kitty also taught Sunday School to generations of children who learned from her faithfulness and from her beautiful spirit.

This painting is a gift of love to the Bradford family.
