I love it when family comes to paint together. A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with this young painter and his grandmother. They wanted to paint together. They came back last week to finish up their works. Very nice work….and so glad to have young excited painters at The Studio.

We had a big day at The Studio yesterday as we had two private Paint Parties. The second one was a family gathering painting these wonderful little snowmen. What fun it was to watch family members work together and joke and have fun while painting. Nice work everyone. Many thanks Brittany for bringing your family to The Studio!

I am excited to be flying down to Savannah today for the reception of my niece’s art show tonight.  Morgan is graduating soon with a major in art.  I’m very proud of her.  You can see some of her work here from an earlier post.  I am sure tomorrow I will have more photos to share. But today I am sharing photos of her from visits here over the years.  Congrats Morgan.  Looking forward to the show! Can’t wait.

Today would have been Big Mama’s birthday.  She was born in 1908 and lived through some really interesting times.  She taught me so much – cooking, sewing, crocheting and how to work hard.  She loved her family, her community and her church and her friends.  She was a beautiful person and I miss her.

Remembering Mama

Mama 2Twenty-two years ago today I lost my Mama.  She was young…just 52 when she died of cancer.  It was and still is the hardest day.  For those of you who have lost your mom you understand.  I know I will never stop missing her.  She was a teacher so today as I teach my art classes I will be thinking of her and know that she is looking down on us smiling…

Big Mama, Papa, Mama, Daddy, Granny and Pop at my parents wedding


Papa and Big Mama, Christmas 1983

Big Mama and Papa  at their 50th Anniversary Party 

I have written many times about Big Mama who taught me crochet and gave me so many wonderful recipes but I haven’t said much about Papa, her husband.  Today would have been his birthday.

Papa, Ephriam Chancey, was a wonderful Christian man who loved his family and his church.  He was a carpenter.  He served as Sunday School Superintendent at Offerman Baptist Church as well as choir director for many years.

He loved to fish and he and Big Mama went on many fishing trips.  He had a quiet humor and was fun to be around.  He lost a leg to a blood clot later in life and one of the funniest stories we tell about Papa is about how much he loved sweets.  At any large gathering where a covered dish dinner was served (church socials, family reunions, large dinners) we often prepared a plate for him and brought it to him.  After the main course he would say to Big Mama, “How about some dessert?”  And she would bring it to him.  If Mama, Sister or  I asked if he needed anything he would say, “I haven’t had any dessert yet”.  And he said the same thing to anyone who walked by….often ending up with three or four different desserts…..which made him very happy.

Happy Birthday Papa!  Hope you are getting several servings of CAKE!
