This year Dad came out to Phoenix with Mom to visit with us and his cousin. I think Phoenix is growing on them.. Mom stayed a week longer. I couldn’t get her back on a horse as she didn’t want to press her luck. So instead we went kayaking. The Hawaiian festival going on by the lake that day was a nice surprise and the blisters on our hands were well worth it.
This painting is an enlargement of a detail in a new comforter for the spare room. I helped Mom sew matching curtains.. and by “helped” I mean “watched”..
