Kristie Taylor

A friend, Kristie Taylor, passed away today at noon from Covid-19 pneumonia. She went into the hospital last Saturday and was put on a ventilator.
Kristie was a member of our Living the Creative Life group.  It was always a joy to have Kristie at our monthly art gatherings before she moved out of state.
She loved her family and art was her passion. She was loved and will be missed by the art community.
Fly free, Kristie, and paint Heaven with all the colors you loved!

This memory popped up on my Facebook page, so I had to share it.  I love this photo.

Throwback Thursday ~June 1, 1949
The Gallagher Children ~ Patty, Audrey, Patrick
I was 1-1/2 years old and had my entire life ahead of me. Little did I know how much I would grow to love these two who held my hand and were always there for me. How perfect ~ a sister and a brother. Throughout our lives, through all the joys and sorrows that life brings, we remained in close contact. Patrick's physical presence is gone, but he is here in spirit ~ forever in my heart.

Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday

1999 - Windsor, Canada

Casey (middle) with two of his best friends, Adam and Tom, on one of their many trips together.  They were inseparable through high school and college, and spent a lot of their time at my house.  I couldn't help but refer to them as "my boys".  Even though Adam and Tom are in Ohio and Casey is in SC, they still get together every year with a few of their other good buddies and go on a yearly trip.  I love that their friendship continues on through the years.

Winter Jasmine

My Winter Jasmine is nearing the end of its blooming time.  It is always nice to see flowers outside in the winter.

12:50 a.m.

This was taken outside my bedroom window at 12:50 this morning as I said goodnight to the world.

It was a calm 46*.

I am dreaming of being in SC, sitting in a comfortable chair very close to the water, drinking a frozen margarita, enjoying the sun and the sea birds.

Quiet all around.

Artist Trading Cards

Carol Weiler from Illinois
Maggie Goodwin from the United Kingdom
Lorraine Merdjan Kushynski from California
 Stacy Woolsey from Texas

So far, I have received four Artist Trading Cards from the “A Moment with Rauschenberg” theme. They are all SO good. I think everyone enjoyed creating their interpretation of his art style.


It was a good day to stay in.  It was a foggy, damp, cold, miserable Sunday!

You Will Teach Them

Vaccine in Blacksburg

We drove to Blacksburg today to receive our first vaccine.  All went well.  We used the back roads to return from Blacksburg.  Cloudy day, but I still enjoyed taking photos.
I don’t think I’ll be seeing the Full Snow Moon tonight.  Too many clouds.

She Cried

She cried under the light of the moon.

Wednesday Evening

On my way home from working in my booth Wednesday evening. The deer are loving these warm temperatures, too! On up the road, one was sweet and posed for me.


72*!! How could I not be outside? Eager to start cleaning the flower beds for Spring’s arrival. But I better wait ... there is always the chance of another snowstorm.

A Blessed Day

Windows and doors open wide.  Trees are budding.  A blessed day.

63* !!!

It's a gorgeous 63* Tuesday!


Monday photos.

We started out foggy and rainy. The sun came out in the early afternoon and gave us a gorgeous 53* day. I watched the sun set and the beautiful sky after.
It was a prelude to Spring!
