Some things that happen in life are so sad that there is
no way to just carry on as usual.  I've written
about this before, and I know I will get back to painting
soon, but for now the loss of my niece is paramount
in the sorrow of my brother, her father, her mother
and the family -- her aunts, uncles, cousins, and me and
my husband.

My niece Chloé died suddenly in early October.  She was
beautiful, kind, intelligent -- a wonderful young woman.

She posed for these two portraits in my Dance Series, and
I will be grateful to her for doing that forever.

Miss you Chloé.  Our love and thoughts are with your
Mother, Father and my brother's wife.
