Mommy does it like this

I never had the opportunity to baby sit. I never experienced a loving relationship with my parents, so I just “winged it”. you parents know how deeply you love your babies, for ever and always. they were so much fun, gave so much joy.

By the time they were in first and third grade I decided to change our story time.I started reading the bible to them. Change of pace. I would read one verse and then they would read one. we would then discuss what we had read (well actually I did that).

We did not finish the whole bible until mark was in high school and coleen was in jr.high. they scored high on the test especially in comprehension. Coleen came home from Lubbock Christian College and said, “MOM YOU HAD US STUDYING COLLEGE LEVEL MATERIAL”

She wasn’t yelling at me, she was just letting me know how surprised at how much she and Mark had learned at mom’s knee, so to say. Advanced studies, I suppose.

MELTING, SMELTING, CREATION

acrylic on canvas. I had painted my first abstracts quite by accident while painting Quickly to my music. Also  many of my dream scene’s, veered into surrealism. This is one of many abstracts I deliberately painted, of course to music.

Again a painting with  sharp, crisp colors.

A SLOW DANCE

IN FLORIDA WHILE MICHAEL FISHED I PAINTED TREES. I LOVE GODS CREATION INCLUDING SCIENCE. LAST NIGHT WE WERE TOLD ABOUT A DISCOVERY OF A NEW ORGAN IN OUR BODIES. ISN’T LIFE AMAZYING AND EXCITING? ILOVE IT.

THESE TREES WERE NEW AND INTERESTING TO ME. I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SEE A TREE QUITE LIKE THEE. WAXING SO POETIC.
