The Art Lesson

Today, I had a one-on-one art lesson with a most precious lady, Miss Horton. Her grown daughters gave her this as a gift for Christmas. I enjoyed being with her so much--she couldn't have been a more precious student--so talented, yet humble and worked so hard. She stood the whole time in her sneakers. She is 84 years old! I couldn't believe it when she told me. She attends the Silver Sneakers workout group at our local wellness center, she plays bridge weekly and attends a Bible study weekly. That sounds like the secrets she has in staying youthful. Let me tell you--she looks maybe 65. Amazing! I wanted to shoot a photo of her, but my battery was dead in my camera, so I just painted her. My studio has brick walls with a slathering of white stucco on the wall--that is where she is standing. There are wood floors also with track lighting casting the shadows....

Love, love, love it!!! What a dear-sounding young lady! I want sneakers like her!

I know that must've been so rewarding in every way to you.
