Life's Sudden Changes...

Hello, dear readers!

When I typed my last post on January 15th, I was joyfully preparing for the arrival of my family so that we could celebrate Christmas together. I would have never imagined that on the following day, January 16th...

would be my father-in-law's last day on this earth.

Hubby and I had gone into the city to do some grocery shopping. Our carts filled with fruits, desserts, snacks... special treats for our fun-filled family weekend.

It was terribly cold on that evening. We were happy to return back home, change into our loungewear and watch the season premiere of "American Idol"! (Now that the annoying female judge has been replaced, we can become viewers and fans again)!

Hearts content.

Warm coffee.

Warm house.


Interesting how life can change suddenly.

One phone call is all it took. Paul's brother was the one who told him of the terrible tragedy- dad was killed in a traffic accident today.

My heart ached for my husband, the "little brother".

Soon, we were packing our suitcases and assisting with funeral plans, seven hours away from home.

Remembering Jerry Lamb.

These two photos were taken last December. We stayed in dad Jerry's beautiful cabin in Colorado. Paul proposed to me. We are so glad that his dad was present to be a part of not only our engagement, but also our wedding day. We shared some wonderful moments these past few years!


Unpredictable indeed.

Hubby and I are now returning back to our normal routines after long, uplifting family visits. We have been surrounded by the most loving people. New relationships now begin...

all because of Jerry.

He's so happy, I just know so!


I was working on this 10"x10" canvas last week.

My waiting buyers have been so very understanding. A big thanks to all!

This piece has been shipped to its new home.

It felt so good to be back in the studio today...




God bless you all!



  1. I'm so sorry for your loss.
