As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
Psalms 42:1

Mom's favorite oil painting
Of all that she had done
Was of two deer panting~
After the waters brook
Spilling o'er big rocks.
One stood guard to watch
Eyes straining to look
In case they had to run...
Its mate got its feet wet
Drinking all he could get...

The Nursing Home
Just this year
Thought Mom's art,
Should be shown...
Of the two male deer
(Also known as hart)
At a local County Fair...
She deserved the praise.
For the judges there
Awarded it first place.
Poetry by me, AJP

When we saw Mom in September, before going to my 50th Class reunion, she had already forgotten that she'd won first place on her painting, due to her dementia and she wondered why she had a blue ribbon..She would have been so thrilled, had she remembered, as this was indeed her favorite painting of all that she had done in her active years and I am honored to have it hanging on my wall now in memory of my late mother's achievements.

    Your dear mother was certainly gifted in so many ways. This painting is stunning! David is an artist, and he also said it was very beautiful and gorgeous. She (I'm sure) was also a magnificant mother to you, and left so many fine memories to ensure she would never really be far off. She is near you always, as she's just a memory away. God Bless, Andrea!

    What talent your mother had! She was so deserving of her blue ribbon. She may not have understood then, but I am sure she knows now that she was honored by the judges, and those who were privileged to view her painting.
