Remembering Cindy on her birthday

Cindy was a great friend and an interesting, unique person. Fiercely independent, incredibly talented, unbelievably brave, extremely curious, amazingly witty, all of those descriptions fit and are opinions held by many. However, she was also exceedingly thoughtful, unwaveringly generous, perceptively kind, and undauntedly loyal.
She loved The Virginia Home and considered the people in it her family. Although she often ventured away, via excursions in her chair, on trips farther afield, exploring the Internet or into the world of her imagination, she always returned to the place she felt the most comfortable and to the people she held dear.
I urge everyone to visit her drawings, either on line or in person. Her spirit is there in every line and her love is there in every deftly felt portrait.

We miss you, Cindy!

A Fun Find!
Looking through some of Cindy's pictures today, I found this great unintentional self-portrait. She just meant to capture the rig we created to make the hotel's bathroom sink accessible for her. [That's the shower head taped to the fancy tissue box.] But, she also gave us this gem showing the mastermind at work. Love it!

Cindy's plaque at The Home

I pass this honorary group of Cindy's drawings several times a day. often with a smile and a pang of sadness.
The right side group, all still here, so they see themselves often!
The center panel includes a self-portrait, a Bygones window and others she crossed in her travels. The center section was from the front page of her water color book, and includes my favorite dog drawing ever!
The left group.
The nameplate at the bottom.
