Birth of a Painting

A large group worked on this painting at different times.

When a person has all they need, what can you give them as a gift and a memory? For my mom’s 90th birthday, 60 or more people gathered to celebrate. I brought out a canvas with a stained glass type of illustration I had drawn on it with a permanent marker. Everyone painted in little parts of the design! After awhile, it was all the men who were gathering around to finish it.

With color and design, laughter and love, a painting was born!!
