The Great Getaway

Mama's painting and flower arrangement inspired by it

My mother won the People’s Choice Award for her painting in The Great Getaway Art Show in Lumberton, NC last week. Her painting was part of the Garden Club Council display where local garden clubs were randomly assigned one of eight paintings to design a complementing arrangement. We thought that was the only contest she was part of, so my sister and I didn’t even vote for her painting for the People’s Choice – she won it without us! Sorry about the glare. It was unavoidable.

We voted for this incredible fiber piece by Jim Arendt, “Ian.”

Lumberton, you have impressed the heck out of me. One day I hope to eat at Candy Sue’s downtown!
