At a Loss

My wonderful friend and fellow artist,
passed away suddenly last week.
She was an extraordinary and talented woman
and will be missed by many.

"Stop and Smell the Lilacs" 
9 x12 oil 

I did this painting of her about  five years ago and
always meant to give it to her.
Lesson learned.
BTW ~ Her hair really was that color!  


  1. Sorry to hear of your loss Nancy. Look what a lovely memory you captured of her here.

  2. Lovely painting.
    Mary thinks it's better for you to have it.
    Don't you?

  3. really sweet painting...thanks for passing the lesson on....I am sorry for the loss Nancy

  4. Oh Nancy, I'm so sorry to hear about the death of your friend. It's a wonderful painting - you've captured such a natural posture. And a very familiar scene around here. It would be a beautiful gift to give someone who loved her <3

  5. She shines in your painting and I'm sure she shone in life. A beautiful painting.

  6. Thanks everyone. I ended up giving the painting to her sister today, who was very touched. Mary is thrilled, to be sure.

  7. You never know..... I'm sure her sister is grateful to have it, and Mary is too ;)

  8. i agree with Mary (Sheehan Winn)...your painting probably means the world to her sister... Mary Lizotte was a wonderful painter and a bigger than life personality. I enjoyed painting with her and Ros. They were both wonderfully accomplished painters and interesting women.
