Such very sad news, I am still in shock after I heard this just two days ago, :'( Marsha was always there to uplift my mood, and encourage me when I was in doubt about my paintings, she always found the right words. She will be missed, but never forgotten.

Brian, you are such a wonderful friend to her and her family, I just know you will make a wonderful portrait, one Marsha would be very proud of.

I have only just got my newsletter and have not been on PB for ages, I am so sorry to hear about Marsha, she was a special and lovely person. My thoughts are with her, her family and those in the Paint Basket Family who got to know her though her art and encouragement of everyone else.  :hug:
Aroha! Lisa :-)

Hey, Lisa.  Have really missed you.  Hope you can carve out some time for us once in a while.

Yes, so sad about Martha, but so good to see how PB members and admin rallied to create the scholarship in her memory. Just another indication that PB is such a special place.

I agree Mea, I am blown away by it all. I am now back to full time work which is good and not so good in that i struggle to fit painting in, but I have managed to do some both this and last weekend so my plan is to do a little each weekend as I can and see how I go. I have missed everyone though  :hug: :smitten:
Aroha! Lisa :-)
