ALL IS WELL oil on canvas, 10"x8"

My mother-in-law, the sweet little lady I painted on June 30, passed away on Jan. 22 and we were gone to the Rio Grande Valley for over a week. We've been home for several days, now, and I've been back painting the past few.

This is a study I did and I'm now working on a big painting (48"x36") of the same scene, but I'm not finished with it, yet.

I'm also needing a bigger studio. I've looked at several places to rent, but... I'm now considering building a studio--well not me building it, but having someone build it for me. I'll let you know what I decide to do.

Ann, my condolences to you and your husband.

I really like the warmth and sense of nurture or protection in this study.

Take care,

Thank you, Dar. I appreciate your kind words.

Thank you, Rob. She was so ill for so long. Even though it was hard for all her family, it was indeed a blessing.

Hi Ann,

I just discovered your blog. Your paintings are simply lovely. I love the expressive brush strokes.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss.
