One night my husband was doing his usual thumb exercises. You girls know what I'm talkin' about. It has to do with the remote control. I went upstairs and picked up my brushes and began to paint. My precious nephew had died in a car wreck a couple of years earlier. It sent me into a tailspin of questions for God like I’d never known. Shelton knew instantly that this painting expressed the longings and my reaching for the God I have loved all my life. We laughed as I later told him that I painted the body I also remembered. It's 24" x 48".

This was the second painting I worked on when I returned to this medium. It was to this day the hardest I have done. Tomorrow I'm taking it to my son and daughter-in-law to enjoy in their new home. I may have to paint another for myself. I'll miss it terribly in my own home. Tina was fishing with her Dad and her Uncle Rick who just happened to catch this shot of her. This little girlie girl loves to fish and hang out with her Dad and Uncle. She also loves to ride her horse Willow so having her boots beside her made the picture complete.
