Her paintings represent the melancholic souls and inner strength that motivates them. She also likes to explore the universal connection between mother and child.
She stayed in Guatemala for 12 years. She opened an art Gallery and established herself at the heart of regional culture. Her work was shown at countless exhibits throughout Central America.

Sounds like a good time. Especially dessert! My favorite part of the meal, :-)

farrell

Yes it is! They are all still here (until Thursday). My niece had her 'wedding party celebration' this past weekend in NH. Just lovely ♥ Have a large family dinner planned for Wed. night...not sure if I'll make it, but dessert will be at my building (large community room) ♥ Then...I will start my diet (tee hee hee)

jals

Hi Lori! Hope your visit with your sister and family was rewarding!

DixieGal

Hi Lori!! : )

farrell

Thank you Teresa! ❤ Sending big hugs to you as well! ~ Lori

"Hello" to Judy & Dottie too! ❤

tere_a1

Beautiful art work! It is a great puzzle, Lori! Thank you for sharing it and I hope you are very well, my friend! Big hugs!! ❤

jals

I got the dishes done and the kitchen mostly cleaned up so I'm back for a bit. I need to make myself go out and go for a walk.

DixieGal

Haha! I understand. Housework can wait but that puzzle keeps calling you to come back, come back! And so we go back to it... : )

jals

The older I get the more I think of that eternity and all that's promised. This world can be so sad at times. Thankfully, I can escape into puzzles. I just finished one instead of cleaning. Now I guess I can't put it off any longer. lol

DixieGal

Thank you, Judy! Haha! We always say we don't want to outlive our children or grandchildren! I Don't believe there's a chance of that.
You're not silly at all. I think it's great to be able to joke about it instead of being morbid! One thing we can look forward to is spending eternity with our loved ones and with Jesus! :)

jals

Dottie, I hope you live as long as you want to!
My husband and I tease each other about who's going to go first. We each think we will be the first to die. I've seen the genes I inherited and the one's he has. Logic tells me it will be me. lol
Silly competition.

DixieGal

Judy, your mom's family sounds like my dad's. His mother passed away just a few days before her 100th birthday. I claim that I have my Mama Owen's genes! All of her grandchildren (heaven only knows how many there are/were) called her Mama Owen, or just Mama, so my mother taught us to call her (my mom) Mother. So nice to know there is a Dottie who is 101! Maybe my chances of living that long are even better. Ha! I hope you are having a great day and feeling really good!

jals

Yes, I'm Judy. Thank you Dottie, for the prayers, much appreciated. I have an Aunt Dorothy that had the nickname of Dottie when she was younger. She is 101, I think. My mom's oldest sibling and she's outlived all but two of the 11. The youngest one is still living and I think the 3rd from the youngest. My husband isn't retired yet. I wish he could.

DixieGal

Yes, I'm Dottie or whatever you want to call me! :D And you are Judy? I think I saw where someone called you that. I wrote it down so I wouldn't forget then I forgot where I put it. I'm so sorry about the fibromyalgia. You will be in my prayers. I understand about the grocery store...not my favorite job either. My husband is a prince too...he does the grocery shopping since he retired! He loves to shop for bargains and he even cuts the coupons out of the newspaper! We are both very blessed to have such good husbands, aren't we?

jals

Dottie? I think that's what people have been calling you. Correct me if I'm wrong. I'm no big mystery. I have fibromyalgia. It makes me really tired, and can be painful. Some days are very painful and others not so bad. I am really fortunate though, as I see others so much worse off. I can still do pretty much what I want. I did quit my job about 18 months ago as I was just too tired to function anymore trying to get up early and keep up at home also. I take naps when I need them, which can be often, take meds for the pain and just try to keep moving.
My husband is a prince. He really is. I am very thankful for him.
Thanks for your concern Dottie. I need to get to the grocery store yet today. :-( One of my least favorite jobs. I hope you're having a great day as well!

DixieGal

Gee, Lori and Judy, I didn't know about your physical problems. I'm so sorry. Do you both have the same condition? Don't want to be nosy, but what is it? I'll be praying for you both.
Yes, Joey will love the ice cream and cake and balloons...what 12 year old doesn't? Sneak me a piece!
Judy, your husband is a prince! So sweet to throw a party for you. See you gals later. Have a great day!

jals

Thanks Lori,
As I told Clive, I know there are a lot of other people who have things much worse. It sounds like you have more limitations than I do. :-(
Aww I'll bet Joey is excited. Cake, ice cream and balloons, you've got it covered. Oh cake sounds really good right now. lol
Eat a piece for me. ;-)

farrell

I'm sorry you're in pain Judy. I know I will feel this in a few hours :) I don't leave my house that often these days, and when I do...it is a big production. Running on happiness & coffee right now. Not bad. Yes, my sister & I have been best friends all our lives...she is the sweet one ♥ Sounds like a great birthday party! That was so nice of your hubby :) I can't do too much, physically, but we have ordered cake & ice-cream & balloons. Lisa has a 12 y.o.son 'Joey' with autism and he is very excited! Hope you have a pain-free & relaxing day :)))

jals

Oh you're just youngsters then!! lol I was up until 2 a.m. with my son's wedding reception 3 years ago. Don't think I've been up that late since. The fibro wipes my energy and leaves me very tired most days. We did manage to stay up until midnight for the Cubs win. Poor hubby had to work the next day. You and your sister are very close in age then! Probably best friends. :-)
I turned double nickels this past year and already another birthday looming close. Hubby surprised me with a party of our family and friends. It made the birthday much easier to take. Had a great night! I hope you have something special planned for tomorrow!

farrell

Thank you ladies! Was up ALL night talking & laughing with my sister...then had to go out & vote this am...(UGH!) Exhausted but worth it! ♥ My sister and I are still both 47 y.o...until tomorrow, Lisa's birthday...she'll be 48 and I never let her forget it! (ha ha) Have a great day!

DixieGal

Lori, enjoy your family. There's nothing like family gatherings...so much fun and love spread all around. We will see you later! ♡ •.¸ HUGS ✽ ♡

jals

Lori, Enjoy your family! Those are the best times!

farrell

Hello Judy, O&A, and Dottie! :) We usually do huge puzzles around the holidays too...one year my little niece Amanda (2 y.o. at the time) wanted to help us with a puzzle of Reba McEntire, but she was too young...when we were finished, we realized just 2 pieces were missing.....We couldn't find them anywhere! ~~~ Until it was time to put Amanda down to bed...changed her diaper...and guess where we found those two 'lost' pieces ??? Yep...IN HER DIAPER!!! She was paying us back for not letting her help! (ha ha) She is 24 y.o. now, with a 2 y.o. of her own ;0) ~~ Can't wait to see your puzzle Dottie!...but I may have to wait a few days, my sister & her family are on their way to my house now...flew in for 10-12 days from AZ! (If I don't 'see' you...have a great week!)

DixieGal

jals, I'm going to post a picture of the puzzle I framed for my hubby. You can see it on my DixieGal posts.
I couldn't find a frame to fit either, so just put one of the dark colors (poster paper) in the background and glued it over that.
Mine is the cheapest frame I could find. : )

jals

Old and Ancient, my hubby and me are definitely the case of "opposites attract", ha. He's an outdoors person and I love indoors. He doesn't read, but would rather watch the movie. I'm the opposite, although I'll read the book and then watch the movie. He is super active and can't sit still to save his life. I, on the other hand, have made sitting a fine art and have to consciously remind myself to get up and move. lol
So we don't do a lot together and I like the chance for us to visit without having to come up with something to talk about.

jals

DixieGal,
I glued one together and framed it but I had a hard time finding a premade frame (cheap) to fit. I ended up using black poster board to make a mat and fill in the extra space in the frame. I have another one that we did that I glued and need to get framed but haven't gotten around to it. That's nice your hubby enjoys your work!

DixieGal

jals and OandA, it's great to meet you and so good to hear about your experiences with puzzles. My husband doesn't enjoy working them but seems to enjoy the fact that I do. I glued together one puzzle that had old cars stacked up in a pile, framed it and he hung it in his office (at home...He's retired.) In my childhood, the only person I can remember who enjoyed puzzles was a favorite aunt. She always had one on her table. Have a good day! : )

jals

I'm glad she still likes to do them. For Christmas a couple years ago, I got each of my 3 sons a jigsaw puzzle. I think 2 of them enjoyed them and the third did not. I should have asked for that one back, now that I think of it. ha ha
That's neat your dad liked to do them. My husband complains he can't find any pieces either but he is liking to do them more and more.

jals

oldandancient, Nice to meet you. Yes, puzzling was a tradition in my family. Every year on Thanksgiving and Christmas, we'd bust out a puzzle on the table after the meal and my mom, my sisters and myself would work on it. Mom would invite strays for holidays too and many times they'd join in on the puzzle time.

Dixie,
Nice to meet you too. One reason why I do still continue to do them on the table once in a while is it gives my husband and I something to do on winter nights and so we sit and visit while we work on them. Something I don't do if I'm on the computer. Also it gives my eyes a break from the screen. I do love the neatness of Jigidi though. :-)

DixieGal

Looks like we all started with puzzles on our dining room table. I finally moved mine upstairs to our bonus/storage room onto a card table. That way they were out of the way. I love the White Mountain puzzles and buy them in the 1,000 piece size. I have given lots of them to the senior center, too, Lori. And, like you, I don't do them much any more since I found Jigidi. Have to say, I miss them, though. But I didn't meet lots of great people upstairs all by myself like I have on Jigidi. :) Love y'all! ♡✫◠◡◠hugs◡•◡•*♡

jals

Lori, That was nice. A good idea too! My sister and I exchange our used ones with each other but when she's done with all of mine, I'll look into that.

farrell

he he ... That is nice! I just donated all of my puzzles to local senior center. No room. Thankful for jigidi ♥

jals

Well, that would have made it easier, but I like a challenge. Can't wait until after Thanksgiving and maybe Christmas are over and I can set a jigsaw puzzle up on my dining table. :-)
The kids have been supplying us with puzzles the last few years and they like to give us a challenge. It's called stump Mom & Dad. ha

farrell

Yes...I think it was a little too big for this collage (would have been better with thicker lines separating the images) ~~ Thanks Judy :)

jals

Loved this one Lori! It was harder than I though it was going to be

farrell

It will be here whenever you're ready Brighty! ♥ Love * Hugs ~ Lori

sparklightie
