|Grandma Jean At Seventeen A Work In Progress|
The last thing that there has been time for is updating this blog. The last several months have been filled with the exciting part of new Seasons, and also the heartache of new Seasons too. Lost my mom on February 6th. She and my sister of course my biggest fans. Lost my sister November of 2015. Still getting use to that too. Frankly it has been a very hard last 6 months. Mom lived her dash well and will be sorely missed; mother of five, grandma Jean of 14 and great grandma Jean to 6. She rode her bike to the grocery store up until she was 85.

She loved her independence. It was very hard days moving her in and out of assisted living to nursing care to hospitals and that horrible circle. She celebrated her 87th Birthday in an Assisted Living Facility. We were not able to keep her home, or I can assure you we would have. We remained blessed in that she did receive the best of care at all the facilities she was with. They were just nowhere she truly wanted to be. She kept her since of humor through the end though, and that glorious twinkle in her beautiful blue eyes.
Her portraits remain a WIP, as I have to stick to (or better said get back to) preparing for the exhibit that opens on the 22nd of March at the Hughes Gallery in Boca Grande FL. Visions of Three Artist, Diane Mannion, Ed Hatch and myself, Karen Ann Hitt. This new season of being the only female with my three brothers and 87 year old pop, remains a challenge to get my voice heard. But what else is new. I have often jested that I am the petite one in my family, and I still am. That surprises a lot of people, when they meet me and hear that, for I stand just shy of six feet tall. The other jest, I am going to be petite when I grow up!
