That Was My School

While I was painting this one afternoon, I heard an elderly ladies voice ask me, "What are you doing?" I answered, "I am painting this old schoolhouse!" Ah, she said, That was my School!" She lived across the street and began to tell me of how she went there from the time she was 5 years old.. Miss Carrie at the time was 92 and after a little persuasion, agreed to pose for me. This painting won me 2nd place in a juried art show and also the Peoples Choice Award... Miss Carrie enriched my life with her stories and I treasure each one of them.. She is gone now but lives forever in this painting...
