HOLD THE LINE ~ A Tribute to Doctors, Nurses, and Caregivers
During these several weeks, I couldn’t help but be moved by the doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, first responders who have been pushing their own limits and who have taken the charge in an effort to hold the line in response to this global pandemic.

God bless this country and
God bless the people of the world.

"The luxurious Rolls Royce Phantom, represents an era of lavish elegance and fine craftsmanship. While painting at my easel I fantasized about wearing a gown, long gloves, buttery red lipstick and a fabulous stole, stepping into this magnificent carriage, mesmerized by its design and detail...
