This is a portrait I did for my good friend Jeri Lynn Ellis. She and her husband Steve have four daughters who really are the most beautiful girls you've ever seen. She was up north and we got to visit, and I wanted to make something for her to take home. This is what I came up with. I really like it. FOUR SISTERS

I just spoke with Esther...she is my husbands grandmother and she is about to die any day. She is a lovely woman that I love very much. Talking to her is easy for me...I don't feel like we are saying goodbye. I've asked her to try to communicate with me from heaven and she said that she will try her best. She and I have a certain connection, and I will miss the fact that she isn't on this earth anymore, but I will be so happy to know that she is with her true love and is healthy and happy and home. I know I will see her again, and will "feel" her when she sends me love from above. She is beautiful.
When I was about 5 or 6 I had a duck named Cinderella. My brother who is a year and a half younger than me had a duck named Batman. His was black and mine was yellow. They ran around our back yard and ate snails. I don't think we had them for more than a few months and then brought them to a park with a lake and let them be with other ducks. My memory is a little hazy, but I think my next painting will be of Batman and Cinderella-should be fun for me...
