|Mom enjoyed my watercolors and gardening so this is for her.|
Taking some time today for a more personal post today....Reflecting, rejoicing, remembering...
My Mom passed away peacefully on a picture perfect fall day last week. Mom was an avid baker (her car’s plate is GR8COOK) so autumn was her favorite season. This "homey" time of year often included making treats, cider and apples, hot tea, reading a good mystery, watching a classic Hitchcock movie...All things I enjoy too.

Because of my Mom I love color (particularly blue greens), dark chocolate, making soups, nature, the library, black licorice, baklava, scarves, farmer’s markets, tote bags, Macintosh apples, swimming, tarragon, making lists (like this one!), a great bargain (is this every Midwestern Mom??), jewelry, PBS "how to" shows (especially Julia Child) and of course helping other artists learn and master a craft that that they too can enjoy.
