Hello my dear friends. I am now settling down after a hectic four week period. It all began on Tuesday 11th May when my mother-in-law was admited in hospital. I was half-way through the first year exams of my five year course for my Diploma in Fine Arts. I was also busy preparing my interview for Smudge Art Global Artists, which I had to finish and send to Madeline M. Ellen in Canada by the end of the third week of May. I finished my painting Exam on Friday 28th May and my Mother-in-law passed away early next morning on Saturday 29th. We laid her at rest on Monday 31st and I sat for my History of Art exam next day Tuesday 1st June. I honestly don’t know how I coped…..it must have been Maddy’s prayers together with her constant encouragement and support which saw me through these difficult times. A great lady and friend…..may God bless her. We are now slowly accepting the reality of life and sorting things out. Francesca was like a second mother to me. May she rest in eternal peace.
May I take this opportunity to thank the various hosts and moderators who chose to feature my work in their sites during this sad and difficult period. I’m sorry if I lost track and missed some of you in my thanks.
