In Loving Memory

A dear neighbor died this week at the age of 56. She had touched many lives with her community activism and was known as the mayor of College Avenue. She was instrumental in planting some trees by the railroad tracks and we have designated “Cyd’s Corner”, tying ribbons on the tree. These are the first few things I’ve painted to place there. 

I varnished these with a nail topcoat. Plan to paint some more rocks in other colors but all I had today in acrylic was red. The gouache wouldn’t last outside. Rest in peace Cyd. A beautiful person gone too soon.

    It sounds like Cyd lived a full and rich life. Sorry you lost such a lovely person in your life- but by the sounds of it, Cyd has left a lasting mark on the lives of many- very inspiring.
