The pictures below are of 2 paintings that Grandma Bev made with us. She taught us how to paint our first canvas. My son Jaden, her great-grandson, was 8 years old at that time.
It was so special that she not only took the time to teach us to paint these beautiful landscapes but she signed them as well.
She didn't want to sign them at first, because she said she didn't want to ruin our paintings. I told her,' Don't be silly Grandma, the best part about the painting is that you painted it with us'. So she signed them "Grandma Bev". Love that, so much.

The picture associated with this post is of an oil painting Bev Weber made for my mother, Eva Decker, in 1986. The pieces portrayed in the picture are of items that once belonged to my paternal grand mother. My mother cherished it because of the memories it portrayed and of the special nature of the one who made it for her.
As life happened, my mother was once married to Bev's second husband, John Shands, a situation often given to strained relations. But Bev determined that John's children whom she loved as her very own would never have a moment's worry over having "2 moms." I grew up being told this dear lady was simply, "Aunt Bev," and she was never ever anything but kind and generous and loving toward me for no other reason than that in her heart we were simply part of the same family. This painting is a testament not only to Bev's artistic gifts, but also to the amazing beauty of her soul. Any one of us should hope to become a fraction of the loving and gracious and gifted person as Bev Weber. Anyone fortunate enough to know her also knows this is true.
