For the show in June, I've asked people to write me a quick memory of their photo so I can have it posted with each painting. Here is what Sherry had to say about her picture.
"Sparkling and blinking lights and tinsel, anticipation and excitement and the smells of the dolls. Is there any stronger memory than the plastic smells of dolls in the early 1960's? I can see too that my mom was battling my frizzy hair even way back in the day! If I've learned nothing else, it is that sponge rollers do not work in my hair. And still, I get excited by the glittering lights and the tinsel and wake everyone up on Christmas morning because I cannot contain my enthusiasm!!"
She is quite the writer. If you haven't checked out her blog, she did a wonderful post today about her painting and, well, it made me feel so great. It's flattery like that which fuels me, keeps me going, knowing I'm moving in the right direction.
