I must wish a belated happy birthday to a woman who has given me tremendous inspiration over the years: my pseudo grandmother Avice. Her paintings and craft projects have captured my imagination for years and there is no doubt in my mind that she has helped shape my creative hand. I am so very honored to have her in my life. This wonderful painting of hers is on our living room wall and I think of her fondly every time I see it.
I know that she will be slightly horrified that anyone pay attention to her in such a way as this but I wanted to let her know just how special she is to me. Happy birthday Avice, may we have many more together.
