I mentioned in my Artist Statement on this website [ kdwfineart.com ] that one of my mementos as a child was the brightly painted table clothes that my sister and I painted as children with our close friends who we called our big sisters. I visited one of these sisters last week and I mentioned my artist statement. As we talked she pulled out the "embroidered" table cloth and told me that her mother had crocheted an edge around the table cloth. How wonderful - I said that I remembered painting this particular one and she gave it to me. Included in this image is a picture of my sister and I. I feel grateful for the time that I spent with my big sisters and this wonderful memento. Thank you Judi and Jaine.
