Kat and family; I am very sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a wonderful painter. I am very lucky to have several of the Southwestern Scenes your mother painted hung around my house. She even painted a Harley motorcycle my nephew owns from a picture I took. Again I am very sorry for your loss. The world has lost a first class painter but she will be remembered in her paintings.
