Number 3, crumpled paper - a page from Gene's desk calendar
Number 4, religious image - I decided on this cowgirl angel made by Jo Watts. http://www.jowattsclaysmith.com/ You can see and buy her work in Bastrop and Smithville at most venues.
We have known Jo and Tom, her recently deceased husband, about 15 years. They lived all over the world, too. We had many fun conversations. We were members of the Guild and have worked together. She makes beautiful porcelain, pottery, paints, silk screen and any art genre you can think of. Very talented. She made little angels for a Christmas tree we, the Guild, donated to the Family Crisis Center. The tree was blue, white and silver with a bluebonnet theme. The angel was holding a bouquet of bluebonnets. She made several for the tree. Gene and I bought the tree in the auction. It had little paintings and ornaments made by the artists. It was nice to have a piece of art from most of the artists in the group. Of course they burned in the big Bastrop fire in 2011. Two of the little angels survived. I like this one with the cowboy hat.
