Bad Week

Hi, what a week, last week was. First the picture above,  this is what  I painted  today, have you ever painted along with  a favorite  artist on you tube. Janet Rodgers is very loose and wonderful.  Remember I took a class from  her and just loved it. I cannot sell or claim this painting as it is from her demo. But it helped me loosen up which is needed today.

Last week I heard at the grocery store that my dear friend, Doris Mae Custis was dying soon,like any minute.  I grabbed a bunch of bright tulips, so she could see them and chocolate pudding.  I went as soon as I put my groceries  mostly  up. Rev.Rob, and Linda were there. Doris Mae couldn't move, open her eyes or talk,but I know  she understood us.Rob said a beautiful prayer. I got to tell her how much I loved her and I cried all the way home and more. She died the next day. I am thankful I got to see her.  I made an apple cake for the after service dinner. We had 3 nights of revival, at church which they asked me to work in the kitchen.  Then Ruth Custis,  another dear friend passed away, another funeral, Apple cake and so many more tears,how blessed I have 2 friends, these 2 dear dear ladies.

My art reflects what my heart feels.  Does Yours? Love to each of you and hugs too,Diana

Orchid from Norfolk Botanical Garden after class.
Hi  , class at Norfolk Botanical Garden was lovely. Ten students did a great job. Today we are having the end of a northeastern storm. Windy  now and cold, the sun is trying to peak out. I finished my little day lily this afternoon. Sadie, our Labrador has napped in bed during the storm.   John just got home, we are having  leftovers for supper. Better get them warming, love to you, Diana
