I am grateful that we found her a small beautiful home, Chateau la Petite in Woodland Hills to care for her. And a masseuse Robin Schwartz who came in twice a week to make sure she was touched.But most of all I think that she loved a caretaker named Dexter Olivario,

I’m parting with her body today, but she is in me, I see her, I feel her. She’s part of the women I paint. I thank her for being such a inspiration to me. Thanks for the love mom. Connie almost made it to 96, I wish I could say she wanted to stick around for those extra years,

She was a Rosie-the-riveter, drilling bolts into planes before and after the war. When the war ended, women were encouraged to give up their jobs & go back to housekeeping,she instead sought all kinds of employment. I saw her fight her battles in seamed stockings & high heels.

Mother as artist muse:The characters I started drawing as a toddler began as I watched &laughed with her.Connie was incredibly animated,she was a playful glamour-puss & would entertain me with terrible impersonations of Monroe, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Katherine Hepburn.

I’d like to imagine that they rode this scooter with me on their shoulders, but they said they did not. My mother is to join my father in a mausoleum wall today.
