WESTERN PREACHER WITH BIBLE
 

 

                    MOUNTAIN  PREACHER                       original  pastel

Born the daughter of a country preacher, some

of my favorite memories were Sundays in the

mountain towns of the Rockies.  There would 

be a home cooked dinner for his services then

travel home accompanied by Mom and us

kids, that worn Bible and blessings from the

faithful.

 
PRAYING GRANDMOTHER WITH CHILD AND QUILT
 

 

                             HER  PRAYERS                              original  pastel

The circle of love, from the interlocking

rings of the wedding ring quilt to the

family circle.  This grandmother prays

with her granddaughter and one day

that child will pray with her daughter.

May the circle be unbroken.

 
MOTHER'S FOLDED HANDS IN PRAYER
 

                         MOTHER'S  HANDS                          original  pastel

These are my Mother's hands, often folded in

prayer by the bedside.  Hands that cared for 

six children, these are the hands that taught

me to draw.
