"The fringe is on the yellow knitted scarf and now I'm knitting a grey one.
Today, I talked with an amazing artist, Irma Gilgore. What a feisty lady she is. She paints her emotions abstractly and is a successful artist, showing her work in the New York gallery of Walter Wickiser. Irma lost her dear husband in February of this year and she has finally gotten through the early agony of loss. Her days are filled with painting, giving lectures, opening her wonderful home gallery by appointment (she lives in a gated community also), etc. She's busy with the Naples Opera company here and other organizations. Our paths crossed because I joined "Portrait & Figure Painting Society of SW FL" this morning. I forgot to tell you that she is my age and lives just 3 miles up the road from me. She says that she is managing so well and is not fragile because she believes the spirit of her dear husband is still always with her."
