I did this painting one day when I was stressed. I put flowers in this mason jar on a table, then set a pair of scissors by it. I needed to get my mind off of things. I never gave the painting much thought.

My first gallery show in Indianapolis was to be a week later. I included my best art. My wife wanted me to put this one in as well. I didn’t want to because I thought it was mediocre but she insisted. It was the first piece that sold. It just goes to show that what you might think is insignificant might be the best you have — and that the woman by your side probably knows a lot more than you do.

This a beautiful painting. Mom was right. I could see this hung in just about any house in America.

I forgot how pretty this painting is. Yes, mom has great taste!

That Norene is one smart cookie! I like pink lures, too. We went to Bass Pro Shops and the kids each chose a bag of plastic worms (those grubs with wiggly tails) for grandpa. The boys chose blue and red, and Annie chose pink with sparkles. I hope they look tasty in the lake! :-)
