Morning Mist

I finished Morning Mist a few minutes ago, just as the news broke that pop icon Michael Jackson had died at the age of 50. I'm not sure I could tell you what world events were occurring at what stages of my art career, looking back, but this one will stick with me. My sisters and I had the ABC album when we were young, and I remember when I moved into my first apartment watching the debut of the Thriller production on a new creation - MTV.

Do you remember where you were when the ABC album was out or when Thriller first appeared on TV? It sure seems we lived in a more innocent time, then, doesn't it?

My best friend in high school LOVED Michael Jackson! I liked him, but not the way she did.

I do remember Thriller on TV. That was quite a video for its time!!!

Hi Nancy, your artwork is lovely - love the soft colours and the overall design of it - beautiful!

I would have been in high school when MJ ruled and Thriller came out, I remember it so well, what a sad ending for him - Val xox

If you look very closely, you can see the little old lady tending her flowers on the side of her house...lovely!

I think I have my old 45's from the Jackson 5 somewhere...

Hi Nancy
I wa going to say the same thing Melissa did about walking down the path. I feel like I am there.

What a shock about Michael J.
I loved his creativity and songs.
What a lonely soul.
The words of his death will stamp a date in my mind of when I heard the news.

Your painting is beyond beautiful.
It gives a feeling to the heart
