My mom’s sister, Aunt Marlis, e-mailed me some pictures of some of her newest artwork! Perfect timing to show off her stuff on my new blog!
She is the oldest of Grandma Vera’s six daughters!! We like to call her by her nickname, Tootsie.
I’ve always admired Tootsie’s strength as a woman and her zest for life. She’s enjoying her retirement at the lake and is busy taking care of her husband Richard. She makes the best brown gravy you’ll ever taste!!!
Tootsie uses acrylics mostly for her medium, but likes using watercolor and Gouache for backgrounds. She enjoys designing her own cards and we love receiving them! She is serving her second year as secretary of the Ozark Brush and Palette Club in Camdenton Mo. She is also a member of the Creative Arts Guild in Osage Beach, Mo.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, “I used everything you gave me.”~Erma Bombeck
