Today (December 21), it's been twelve years since my Nana passed away. I miss her everyday. As I get older, I miss her in different ways. I wish she was around to see what I've become. I always wonder what her reactions would be to the things I'm doing, the art I'm making. She was a gentle and beautiful person; a woman who loved her trees, red cardinals, gold brooches, decorating for Christmas, a cat named Buffy, and "rich" colors. My mom always tells me I'm a lot like her and that makes me feel very honored. So, I wanted to post some of my favorite pictures of my Nana, Mary Claire. You can click any of them to see them larger.
And for Nana, a red cardinal in our yard yesterday.
I love the line of women that I am lucky enough to come from.
I love and miss you Nana (and Buffy). xoxoxoxo
