My Sister the Artist

A whilw back my grandson came through and ask..”Bebe..What is that?” He was looking up..on top of the hall book case and saw this.

DSCN1937You may be wondering too. This is a piece my sister did while in art school at Mississippi Southern.(Univ.Southern Mississippi  today) She called it “a habitat for small animals”. You know how animls find what they need to establish a safe home for themselves and their young. Here is a closer look.DSCN1939.JPG

Can’t you just see a momma rabbit and her young finding this a safe place? Becky was the real artist in our family. She was studying art education and because of her health challenges was in need of open heart surgery before going into practice teaching. The doctors in Houston, while world renowned, were not able to give her her wish. She was only 23 years old when she left us and it left a hole on our family. These holes get patched but never filled. Today she would have been 70 years old…Is hard to imagine. Here are a couple more of her works.DSCN1949DSCN1944
