Sunflower Painting and Sad News
It also kept me busy with the painting , I kept coming across Nancy's notecard.. Nancy is one of my students and a dear friend who sent me a lovely handpainted note last year when I had back trouble to wish me well. I cherish it and I'd been thinking of her so much. I had heard she had pancreatic cancer and later that night I heard she passed away. She was a sweet person.. a biology professor.. she loved colors and told me she bought just about every tube of new color she could.. She said she had a bushel basket of them! I''ll miss her and my love and sympathy to her family. I came up with the idea and started doing checkerboard paintings with her.. we did a pear and she used a different color in each 1/4 inch square. It was lovely.
This weekend, Sunday I will be painting plein aire in Cape Charles Quick Draw. A 3 hour event..(it's short ) from 9am-12 noon we paint, then are judged.. It will be fun. love to you all and have a great weekend! Diana
