Here is a picture of Tara in her new "home" at Missouri University-Columbia. She still has been getting homesick at night and I have had several tearful "middle of the night" phone calls. We have always been very close and it's been hard. I think when classes start on Monday, she will have more to focus on and it will help. Does anyone out there have experience or advice about homesick college students?? The other picture is of Tara-20, Laura-18, and Jordan-16 on the college campus. Tara is a junior studying psychology, Laura is a freshman at the community college studying art, and Jordan is a junior in high school. They are all very good kids and I am so proud of all three of them. I am planning to start three new paintings this evening after we barbecue ribs for dinner-yumm! They are all Halloween ones--Jenny Carter's blog, Wonders of Whimsy always gets me in the spirit! Thanks Jenny!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
