Here's the start of the new still life I'm working on. The last time I was at Mama's house in OKC, she had placed this little vase on my dresser in my old bedroom and filled it with her marigolds. She was so glad I was home to visit and so was I and we had a wonderful time. That was the last time I got to spend time with her. She died six weeks later. So I've a special attachment to this little vase.
