A Forward View

9 Paintings of 2019

2019 was one of those “mixed bag” years of great joy to great sorrow, as well as everything in between.

One highlight of my year happened in the beginning of May. My painting, “Leaf On The Vine” was part of the Oil Painters of America National Exhibition which was a thrill and great honor to be part of. My husband and I, along with our two Boxers travelled to Utah to see the exhibition as well as Zion and Bryce National Parks.

Sadly, a couple of weeks later, my mother passed away. She was 89, a woman of strong faith and was always committed to praying each day for family, friends, acquaintances and our Nation. In many ways she was a great example and encourager and I will always be thankful for her.

As we look back to the memories and accomplishments of 2019, I hope we can use what we have learned, having a forward view of the new year with hope in our hearts for each new day.
