Dick was a constant walker, and his hands shook much of the time, so getting him to do any kind of art work was always difficult. He walked in a circle around the day care, and as he came by he was handed a paint brush full of paint and asked to paint on the paper. Each time he came by, the color was changed.
I am not an artist, but I do like to paint and do creative things. I would like to paint you a picture, a panoramic landscape, of a wonderful man who has been my husband for 43 years. The colors would be greens, browns, and earth tones, because he loves the outdoors; (nature, fishing, hunting, hiking, running, and all kinds of athletics). There is a bright sun, because he is always smiling and cheerful. No gloominess in this picture. Beneath a beautiful mountain is a stream, running very, very fast, making its mark in the world, just as he did for 36 years working for the same company.
