My Paintings

Some of you have asked me about my paintings.  I decided to do an entry on them.  I hope you enjoy looking at them.  I love to paint.

I also love to sing.  I sing everyday.  I have made tapes of me singing for my Dad every year for Christmas.  He seems to like them.  He listens to them on his long car drives.  I love making them for Daddy because I can give him a little piece of my heart whenever he listens to them.

My niece has asked for 2 years now for a tape of her own, so I have been making her tapes as well

When Christi was here on her last days she asked me to make her a tape so she could listen to me while she had her chemo.  She said it helped to take her mind off the process.  I had a hard time making that tape because I wanted it to be really special.

Also I had to keep my voice cheerful and I would have to stop sometimes and cry my eyes out knowing she was so weak and still giving everything she had to get well.  Sometimes I couldn't record again until the next day. 

Anyway here are some of my paintings...guess I got side tracked. I hope you enjoy! Barbara

I have more than these if you would like to see more let me know and I will make another entry of them.

I wish I could paint like that.  When I was a kid there was a guy on the PBS station on tv. He was a painter and I LOVED watching him paint.

You sound so talented.  I can't sing or paint. In fact my singing is so bad when I was younger around 10 they told me to mouth the words to the song in the musicial.  Do you beleive that. My mom can paint anything but she can't sing either.

I know your sister just loved that tape more than anything.  I must have been so hard for you but I know it was worth it.
