Big Maybelle by Ruth Farrall

5 1/2" x 7" glitter and acrylics
Big Maybelle by Ruth Farrall
This portrait of Big Maybelle was done by a dear friend of mine who recently passed away on Thanksgiving from cancer. I received this little painting in the mail today from her sister. (Thanks, Linda.)
Ruth was a highly talented artist and an unforgettable friend.
I blogged her "cat with crown" drawing earlier: LINK 
Ruth loved all of the best stuff in life- blues music, cats, nature and all forms of art.
She was smart, funny and beautiful. She was also a teacher who inspired her students and she inspired her friends. I think about her every day.
