Rowena and the Miners

I cannot help myself. The miners are coming up out of the mine in Chile one by one. I feel the need to watch and worry each and every miner to the top. It is so wonderful and frightening all at the same time. Then once they get to the top watching the families unite, makes me cry. Only once in a great while does something wonderful and inspiring so captivate the world. This is a day of celebration and thankfulness.

Oh, back to painting. Plein air at Rowena with my cast on.

Dave and Laura are looking at this. Laura really loves this picture and the way you show the photo that inspired it. We both think you are really talented and Laura likes that she knows a famous artist. And she is my sister.
We love you Donna.
