The Passing of a Great Artist
Today I lost a very special, lifelong friend and mentor. Since before I can remember, Betty Nissen was a driving influence on my creativity. She was my "other mother", and as Jim has termed her, she was my "Spiritual Godmother". This is a photo that was taken of her in 1976, in Hawaii. Of all the photos in our old family albums, this is the one that to me expresses what I connected with the most in her personality... her sassy, relaxed, creative fire. I will so miss this beautiful lady.
For those of you who've missed my regular postings, I apologize... I found Facebook, and have been catching up many "friends" with the creativity you've all been sharing already! When I finish creating my business Facebook page, I will link you to it. I've been in denial for a long time as to what a powerful tool Facebook is!
