This is the ad in the Sept Issue

Tomorrow is a day Daily Painters honors one of our collectors, Barbara Haukenberry. She passed away about six weeks ago. She was a supporter of the self representing artist and a unique collector.

I choose this painting as it was one of her favorites and it is available for purchase. It was featured in an ad in the Sept 08 issue of Western Art Collector from my show up at the Rare Gallery in Jackson Wyoming. This piece never made the actual show, but I have it here in the studio now and am revarnishing it.

We never know in life who will meet along the way, or the purpose that God has for those we meet in our lives. Are we to serve them or they to serve us? God's purpose is never fully understood at the time, but later we are able to look back at the relationships and see the whys of it all. Barbara made a difference in the lives of many of us and for that time that I knew her I do give thanks for her kind heart, her unique sense of humor and her friendship.

I also sit in reflection of another great woman that touched my life, Fay Haskell Brown. Fay was my mother-in-law. She entered my life at age 18 and she was a golden touch to life. I learned to prepare southern foods from her. She was the finest example of a gracious southern belle. She played the piano and sang; she graduated from Stephen F Austin with a degree in music and her teaching certification; she taught 2nd grade for ever in the Beaumont ISD here in Texas; and she was a remarkable wife, mother and daughter. She died yesterday in Nacogdoches TX. I don't know her exact age, but she was close to 90. God has a bright new star adorning the heavens and I will see her there each night knowing her light still shines here on earth.

Thank you Lord for those you put in my life and keep me every aware of the joy and learning to be gained from those in my life right now.



"My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding."--Psalm 49:3
