Study 54: Art Resolutions-Umbrellas Fly for Jan

Art Resolutions is a self-imposed initiative to create an artistic study every day for a year.

Today I received the sad news that one of my closest friend’s mother died. I have known Jan for since I met her daughter in college. She was artistic, soulful, and an iconoclast. flying umbrellasKeenly supportive of her five children and still had time to follow and offer words of support for her children’s friends–like me. She was one of the most avid reader’s of my prose and was enthusiastic with her praise and following. I will miss her fabulous laugh, biting wit, and incredible generosity of spirit and heart.

Wherever you are, Jan, breathe easy. The umbrellas spin and fly for you.
