Family Time in Art and Love in Stockton, CA

On Friday we went to Stockton to visit my 94 year old Uncle Harry and Aunt Mimi. It was EXTRA special because their daughter, my cousin, was visiting from Colorado, and was there with her daughter, and the daughters' two daughters (the little girls seen in this photo drawing/painting with me).

I drew them, and Lyla (age 6), drew flowers, sunsets and birds!
Hadly drew abstracts!

Here's my rendition of Lyla drawing flowers, Hadly painting too, and their Grandma looking on.

My cousin Judy came in from Sacramento too. It was a fun cousin filled day!
An another younger generation cousin, Debra, came from SF.

I brought them all copies of my Vacaville Magazine article. (If you haven't already seen it you can see it online at

I love the LOVE in our family! Our elders are wonderful role models.

No one told me I was to wear stripes! But hey, my pants had very narrow pen stripes!

I'm the eldest of the three (in the center). We are all young at heart!
(I just noticed that Barb, on the left, is standing in front of her little girl photo)
I'll share this with Sunday Sketchers, and you can reach that blog

Thanks for your comments, they mean a lot!

If you missed my plea for prayers/positive healing wishes, for my best friend, Patty, in my previous post, you can see what I made her there and leave your prayers here or there, it doesn't matter;
but sending them will help in her healing I have no doubt and will be MUCH APPRECIATED!

Thank YOU!
