Every Inchie Monday....Sisters and the opening of Potpourri....
Every Inchie Monday this week is "Sisters". My sister Donna Marie is 11 months younger and about 5 inches shorter in height. Irish Twins is what my grandmother used to call us as we grew up like Mutt and Jeff in Louisville, KY. I always wanted to be petite and she wanted to be tall...but in the end we each grew up to be just what we should have and we both sort of resemble our mother Rosie. My embellishments include three little monkeys because we have learned to "speak no evil, hear no evil and see no evil". For as you all understand sisters have an incredible bond to one another even when they are separated by the years or the miles. The third sister does not have to be born from the same mother...my sacred sister and I have been friends for over 25 years and now she lives in Tucson and I remain here in Ohio ...we are never separated by more than a heart beat.
The exhibit Potpourri opened last Friday and I am sharing the beautiful works and incredible friendships these special sisters have shared over the years with their beloved and dedicated teacher ...Marilyn Stocker. The ages of these incredible women have about a four decade span in ages but are totally united in the rhythms of their gentle, trusting hearts. Their styles are diverse but I think you can appreciate their dedication as they each explore each new technique and style presented. I hope you enjoy their exhibit.
