|MidLife Jubilation - Fran Mangino|
Fran's painting always reminds me of those pleasures. I met Fran Mangino many years ago at an art show when I lived in Ohio. She was just starting to paint at the time. Each year showed more progress and her watercolors blossomed not only with flowers but depth as well. This is one of a series she did which celebrates the truisms of midlife and I have it in my office to remind me to relax and play whenever I can (that is her on the right). My nothing moments are like strands of pearls - long, sinuous and appreciated for the beauty of their being.
