Hi. I'm a painter, a writer and a mother of three teenage sons, one with a severe disability. This is a journal: riotously disorganized, full of art, food, children and everyday domestic events. Unless you are a friend or family member you may not be interested, but you are welcome to look. Artists who are parents may find some
common ground here, as well as parents of children with special needs. For art only, see my site: nancybeamiller.blogspot.com

DEAD ROSE LEAF and wizening kumquats. Sometimes I look around my studio and see it as a place where beautiful flowers and succulent fruit go to die. But before they get thrown on the compost heap, they get their portraits painted. A deal with the devil?
