 Time to live with my "Wildflowers and Memories" painting to see if I want to make any changes before it goes out into the world!

I had to wait to show my precious pink tree till after we revealed our Secret Sister's since I had got her and my own sister one also!  Sister Judy and I call them our memorie or friendship trees.  The picture in front is my Mother and to the right my paternal grandparents in younger years.

I decided to make a little mini bunting for I didn't know where!


or here?

Our son Paul and Tracee met us at the cemetery this morning he brought his usual  lawn wind ornaments. They always look so pretty twirling with the wind! He said "They're fun! We're having a party out at the Snare plot!"

Our middle son Phil  died in 1981

Our youngest son John died in 2005

We planted this White Pine as a very small tree in 1981 the year Phil died. It was struck by lighting and damaged badly the year John died but it survived and  is a fine big tree now! I invite you to visit my other blog at and Marlynne Snare Folk Artist on facebook also. Have a great week!

Hi Marlynne-
As always, your paintings are wonderful and so is that adorable bunting! I'm so saddened to learn that you have lost two of your boys, Marlynne. I'm sorry! And you still manage to fill your life with art, friends, God, and beautiful things. You are so inspiring to me!
Hugs to you- Erica

Wish I had that talent!

I'm so sorry to hear about your boys. You must be a very strong woman.

Oh goodness, I am so sorry to hear of your sons deaths....That is way more than a parent should ever have to endure....I guess you are living proof that you can still put one foot in front of the other while still grieving for a lifetime! Your painting is gorgeous...I would not change a thing!
