This is my dear wife, Louise, in 2007, holding our then newly born granddaughter,
Diver Ida Jane Ternay.
and spend precious time with her beautiful little granddaughter.
And this is Diver 3 years later with her wonderful mother, Maggi Jane. Our family decided
to celebrate Mother's Day this year by going to the gardens at Winterthur, the former estate
of Henry Francis du Pont, near Wilmington, DE.
For those artists who enjoy painting gardens, Winterthur is overflowing with subject matter,
especially in the spring. I spent a spring morning in "Azalea Woods," doing this oil painting.
(5 X 7", oil on panel, $110.00)
in the magical area for children of all ages,"Enchanted Woods."
She danced in the mists of the mushroom fairy circle with her daddy, Pierce, and her
mystical uncle Flarkus.
And briefly considered having afternoon tea, with some Elves, in another nearby tree trunk.
But the elves were not at home. Away, no doubt, visiting their own mothers on this beautiful spring day.
